The UK’s second ever VX One National Championship gets underway from 2 - 4 October at Weymouth Sailing Club. With boats travelling from as far afield as Ullswater, Edinburgh and the West Country, a good forecast and the sailing taking place on Weymouth Bay’s Olympic waters, the event is promising some thrilling and highly competitive, one-design racing.

The lively VX One, which has strong fleets in the USA and Australia, is already catching the eye of many top UK sailors. Last year’s Nationals saw the likes of Peter Barton and Olympian Stevie Morrison try their hand in the class, with more newcomers this year. Former Enterprise and OK World Champion, Jim Hunt will be making his debut in the fleet, along with Adrian Peach the SB20 Cowes Week Grand Slam champion.

Current VX One Inland Champions, and former International 14 stalwart, Howard Steavenson, sailing with son Tom, are racing as one of the fleet favourites for the Championship title.

Recently described as “The best one design ever!” by five times 505 World Champion, Wolfgang Hunger, and the “One of the most exciting new Sportsboats to hit the scene” by Yachting World’s Matt Sheahan, and with full support from the Ovington Boats team on shore, we can look forward to some exciting sailing over the next three days.
