40 Boats @F16 Europeans 2012: Report & Results*

Great event at Como for the Formula 16 Class on boat numbers.Sadly no info or even results available beyond Gill de Bruyne and other posting images of the result sheet.
Never heard of Phipps, but he is leading with two bullets over some known talents like Jack Benson, Le Chapelier, Vaireux, Bissaro, Hainneville and others. Quite a competitive fleet with many mixed crews.
The Class needs to put some time on promotion, more with this fleet numbers. Images from practice race. On results I managed to scan/ocr the first 30 positions, the rest you need to check them on this jpg.

Day 2 report by Gill de Bruyne
"Day 2 of the Europeans and first day of racing.


Day started with a Northerly wind which is a bad sign in Como. By 2 pm the North wind died and the South one started to come.
3 races today with great action on the water. The first and second race we had nice sailing conditions double trap from time to time. On the third race the wind dropped a bit and we were both in.
Level definitely increased compared with the previous years, making the class definitely more and more attractive. Results on our Facebook page, no pictures were taken."
Regards
Gill

Seb Greber also post a link to Tom's blog where you can find his daily report on the event:tomphippsonline.squarespace.com/blog/

Thanks JW&Seb.
"Tom Phipps is the son of Brian Phipps who has been a leading figure in the dart 18 class for decades. He is currently the owner and builder of the Dart 18 http://www.windsport.co.uk/modules/catparts.php
Brian Phipps has been involved in a massive youth program in the UK in which his own son took part as well. I think they used dragoons for that and the competed in carnac for example.

Tom Phipps has shown his talent for sailing in the recent years. Mostly in the dart 18. He has been crowned world champion in this highly competitive class 2010 when the worlds were organised in Weymouth at the same location
as the current Olympics.
Only a few weeks ago he won the uk natonals dart 18 with this crew.

The pair was formed through the talent program of the rya, not absolutely sure about that one though. What i do know is that the team up to qualify and participate in Rio 2016. And they for sure will be a force to be
reckoned.
