UK Nationals – Medway YC (NCS-SW)

Event Details

Wayfarer UK National Championships at Medway © Paul Babington /

After two years without a championship, the Wayfarers held their Nationals 2021 at Medway YC, 5-8 August. It was not the event it should have been. The European Championships due to run alongside the Nationals had to be postponed because it was impossible for the Europeans to come and play with us. An understandably cautious approach to Covid risk which we have all gained during the last 18 months, also put paid to some other UK-based entries.

The big question was: would the passage of time result in a change of power base? Would anybody be able to come along and take the title from the reigning and perennial champions, Michael McNamara & Simon Townsend? more
