Welcome to VX One designer Brian Bennett

Welcome to VX One designer Brian Bennett

Brian, and his son Hayden, gave a VX One Masterclass to members of UYC’s fleet of the asymmetric racing keelboat. The fleet at the club has developed rapidly in the last two years and is now the biggest in the country. Brian and Hayden, who are based in America, recently took part in the inaugural VX One Euro Cup in France. While in Europe they offered to run a day-long session with the VX One fleet at Ullswater. 

VX One sailor David Clarke said: “We were honoured to welcome Brian and Hayden Bennett to the club. They spent the whole day with us. Brian talked to us about the boat, how it came about and passed on his go-faster tips. Then we went out sailing and they spent the afternoon giving us on-the-water coaching. We were lucky to have sunshine and some wind and Brian and Hayden saw Ullswater at its best. We hope they will come back to visit us again.”

The club’s VX Ones will be out in force on Ullswater the weekend of June 25 and 26 for the Inland Championships, as well as at the club’s flagship event of the year the Lord Birkett Memorial Trophy, the following weekend, July 2 and 3.
