F18 UK Nats 2017: Simon Northtrop & Freddie White Champs

Third consecutive F18 UK Nats for Simon Northrop, this time around sailing with Freddie White. 7 bullets out of 13 races for them , sailing a Windrush Edge with Simon's own Hyde Sails.
Simon has been dominating the F18 UK scene for a while and also performing at European level, at past Worlds in Denmark he was having a great performance also, and was about the few to led Mischa in the Finals.

His comments from the event : "UK Nationals started today in glorious weather with a slowly increasing sea breeze.  I'm sailing a Windrush Edge this weekend and first impressions are good ! Event held by a small volunteer club but a great venue in the Solent - Hayling Ferry.
I'm sailing with Freddie White (Reg Whites grandson).
Obviously it's been a very difficult week with losing dad but I got the trophy for him ! "
Past week Simon's dad passed away so it was a special regatta for him, as his father also taught him & his brother how to sail cats on a Condor cat, this new title was dedicated to him.
