2016 UK Class Champion - Phil Holiday

Recommended Posts


After travelling back from the Marblehead Worlds to make last round of the 2016 Travellers series at Bournville in October, Phil Holiday from Datchet Water MYC was crowned 2016 Class Champion.

Over the 8 scoring events of the series 69 skippers took part, ranging from national champions to 1st time competitors. In the end though it was consistency that paid off, with two of the top three places taking two discards out of a possible three. It was looking like a straight fight between Phil Holiday and Noel Donaldson but Mark Dicks showed good form at Bournville to end up splitting the two. The winner of the 2016 Nationals, John Tushingham, despite scoring well in the events he entered, didn't score enough to get better than 5th overall.

The top ten is below with the full table attached

1 Phil Holiday 66 Datchet Water 429

2 Mark Dicks 6 Clapham 416

3 Noel Donaldson 29 Watermead 397

4 Nigel Brown 55 Gosport 390

5 John Tushingham 51 Keighley 370

7 Ken Binks 83 Eastbourne 254

8 Garry Box 103 Manor Park 234

9 Mike Parkington 697 Fleetwood 209

A big thank you to all involved, both sailing and behind the scenes, in 2016 and here's looking forward to a strong series in 2017, including the 2017 National Championships in Birkenhead.
