The competitors arriving at Penzance Sailing Club’s annual Enterprise Open were greeted by fine sunny weather, flat seas, and a little more than the NE F3-4 forecast. It was a small but friendly gathering, where two Looe boats joined with the five Penzance boats.
The 2018 Allen Enterprise Inland Championship was held at Blithfield Sailing Club over the weekend of 14/15 April. In addition to being the Inland Championship, this event also kicked off the 2018 National Circuit series.
The Enterprise Class held its National Championship this year at Abersoch, hosted by South Caernarvonshire Yacht Club, from 6th to 11th August, writes Phil Bevan.
