For a second year running Allen will be supporting the Blaze Nationals which are taking place at Brixham Yacht Club on the 7th to 9th June.

The class, which regularly gets 40+ at its Nationals looks like they are set for another bumper year with 42 competitors already entered. Some competitors will be coming from as far as Essex and the West Midlands for an exciting, long weekend of racing, in the well-known sailing area of Torbay.

Ben Harden, marketing assistant at Allen and a keen Blaze sailor, commented "The Blaze is a great class to get involved in. The boat is relatively simple to set up and sail, but tricky to get the peak performance from. I've got one of the older boats in the fleet, but with a few hardware upgrades from Allen and a new sail, the boat goes just as well as some of the newer ones!"

Allen has kindly provided plenty of vouchers and other goodies for overall winners of the event as well as prizes for the Fire and Halo Fleets. The Fire and Halo are additional sail choices giving lighter or heavier sailors a chance to get involved in racing if the conditions don't suit their body weight.

Allen manufactures performance sailing equipment from its headquarters in Essex, UK which it exports around the world. The company has a 60 year heritage and has a reputation for innovation by incorporating feedback and development from its sponsored sailors into its products.
