2017 has been a successful year for Nick Robbins and Billy Vennis-Ozanne so far. Starting off by improving on their result in last year’s RYA Youth Nationals with a Silver in the 29er Class at Hayling Island, The Team Allen sailors fought down to the wire in a close match, but were ultimately unable to better the performance of James Hammett and James Eales. they then went on to the 29er Worlds in California where they sailed most of the week ranking in the top 7 but an unfortunate last day saw them drop to 14th overall. With barely enough time to get over there jet lag they where back to the UK for the Nationals at WPNSA. With conditions suiting them they managed to top off a winning week by winning the last race of the regatta. They are now UK National Champions. Next stop is the Europeans in France.
