B14 Europeans returning to Whitstable this September

The B14 European Class association are pleased to announce Original Cottages (Kent & Sussex) as the title sponsor for the two events. The Original Cottages (Kent & Sussex) B14 European Championship and Original Cottages (Kent & Sussex) B14 National Championship are being held at Whitstable Yacht Club from the 1st – 4th September.
Entries are now open on the WYC website, see The first 20 paid up entries will be entered into a draw to be drawn on the morning of the briefing. The lucky winning teams will receive a card with credit for each team to spend over the bar during the championships.
With the reduced restrictions now in place with regard to Covid, we are looking to see entries, from France, Germany, Switzerland and possibly other European countries. This will be the first meeting up of the European fleet since 2019, so shall be interesting to see who rises to the front. New B14 owners, this is a fantastic opportunity to come and meet the rest of the fleet and tap into that knowledge and get help in setting up your B14.
Whitstable is a popular venue with tourists, so you will need to check out the club accommodation list as soon as you book your entry. The fall back is either the Premier Inn or camp sites which are walkable. Teams wishing to get in some practice are welcome to turn up early and park their B14 in the dinghy park.
