Latest NewsFLYING DUTCHMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SET FOR TAKE OFF

The 2014 Flying Dutchman World Championships at Largs, Scotland are ready to launch.
Saturday and Sunday are boat measurement days, and the sailors are also venturing out to test the waters after their measurements have been completed.
Racing will start on Monday 14th July, and will be completed on Saturday 19th, after a maximum of nine races over the week. Racing will take place in the Firth of Clyde, North of Cumbrae, in waters between the Isle of Bute and the mainland. 
Competitors have come from eleven countries on three continents, with particularly strong contingents from Germany, the Netherlands and Great Britain. A number of past champions are among the 43 competing boats, so competition will be fierce.
Racing starts on Monday at 11am.
