The 2013 RS Feva World Championships, held in Grosseto, Tuscany Italy saw a British podium with Hannah Bristow and Bobby Hewitt taking the championship title. This year, Hannah is helming for her sister and Bobby crewing for another helm leaving the World Championship title wide open.

The race format is set to sail in three fleets for the first two days, before qualifying into the Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets for the rest of the regatta. The social calendar, in true RS Feva style is set to impress with the Nations Cup two boat team racing, the annual beach games and BBQ all to be held on the scheduled layday, Wednesday 30th July.
