“We will have several past and certainly potential olympians compete in what are the fastest type of sailing dinghy in the Olympics. We expect somewhere between 10 and 20 boats, helmed and crewed by the fittest of young, highly competitive sailors. The action will be right alongside the pier in FenitĀ from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon, with plenty of thrills and spills no doubt. This should be a unique spectator event, with Fenit Pier being a brilliant viewing spot and Fenit Harbour being second to none for such an event,” said Brian.
