History made at the 2016 Farr National Championships

Hamish Hall-Smith has won the Farr 3.7 National Championship and made a bit of history at the same time being the first under-21 sailor to win the Open Title.
Only 2 1/2 years after hopping out of a Starling, and after campaigning a 49er last season, Hamish (17) focussed on building a new wing rig in an effort to harness more power and this proved a step forwards for his boat set up.
