Team Simcenter takes top prize at World Championships…

By Jane Wade

After two days of qualifying and three days main event, 14 races in total, more than 25 hours on the water, countless cereal bars, bananas and litres of water a winner was crowned.  Team Simcenter featured heavily in the prizes and we are delighted to have helped them on their journey.  There is a write up of the event on the Yachts and Yachting site and full results are available on the RS Feva website.
