GP14 Worlds - Final places going fast

Following the announcement of the Platinum Fleet a couple of weeks ago places have started selling fast for the 2018 Gul GP14 World Championship.

The Gul GP14 World Championship is hosted by Mounts Bay SC, Cornwall UK, and looks set to sell out in the next couple of weeks with only five places left out of the 130 allocation.

After this a reserve list will open with five places on it should a boat drop out.

There are currently 47 Gold Fleet sailors entered so the quality of the competition will tough.

Competitors will still enter under the usual Gold, Silver and Bronze fleet allocations and then during the event a Platinum fleet will be established by taking the overall leading fifteen boats in the Championship after five races have been completed.

This means that for the final overall prizes there will be prizes for the top six boats (who we would anticipate would be from the Platinum Fleet but don’t have to be) and then the top three from each of the Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets.

There will also be more coverage than ever of the event with live boat tracking available to watch online thanks to a partnership with Sailing Southwest who will supply a GPS tracker for every boat that wants to use one.

Visit the event website for more information about the event or to secure one of the remaining few places: www.gp14.org/events/2018-gp14-world-championship

Once the entry list is full please contact the GP14 office to enquire about a reserve place: 01204 590325.
