We are Sailing. . .

We were pleased to sponsor Copyrite's resident father and son sailing team, Ken & Chris Cheney, when they competed in the Dart 18 European Championships in Grosetto, Italy, earlier this month.

Their boat was given a Copyrite makeover and then transported all the way to Italy in a 40' articulated lorry.

The Dart 18 is a small catamaran first designed and built in 1975. The competition involves 10 races over 7 days, and points are awarded in the same order as the finishing position, so 1st place gets 1 point, 2nd place gets 2 points, and so on. The worst 2 scores are removed and the remaining points determine the finishers overall place.

With 70+ entries, our boys did well finishing in 31st place, but their best position was 14th!

Ken told us "Every day the sun shone and the temperature was about 40 deg C, the wind was SW force 4-5, and the sea temperature was 25-30 deg C. We were sailing in shorts and T-shirts, it was perfect sailing weather!"
