Matt Beck Sailingfast Competition WinnerSailingfast Support of UKLA Laser Inlands

The long-range forecast for the Hallowe’en weekend was looking decidedly good for paddleboarding. Less so for sailing! However, some undaunted Laser sailors took to Rutland Water to enjoy the UKLA Laser Inland Championship.

Sailingfast continued their support of the Autumn events. Armed with a fresh delivery of sails for the fleet and the winner of their sail competition. Entries continued coming in on Saturday at registration. We are delighted to announce the lucky winner was 4.7 sailor, Matt Beck.

Competition winner Matt Beck wins 4.7 sail from Sailingfast

Matt hails from Ledbury in Heredfordshire and has only recently transitioned from the Optimist class. He says, ‘Thank you to Sailingfast for the new sail, which will come in useful at the next big event’. Matt’s weekend was rounded off by winning the 4.7 class to call himself the 4.7 Inland Champion 2016.

Iain Calder continues, ‘We’ve had some great feedback in supporting the Qualifiers and Inlands. Sailingfast aim to maintain this level of support and free delivery to the Spring Qualifiers and future national meets. Keep an eye on the Sailingfast Facebook page for details of which events we will be at.’

Each of the classes at the Inlands (4.7, Radial and Standard Rigs) have written their own report of the event.
