The 2013 Ovington Boats Phantom Nationals was held over the long weekend of 6th to 8th September at Shoreham Sailing Club, near Brighton. Although it was a long weekend several Phantomers decided to arrive on the Wednesday to get some practice and boat tuning in before the mass arrived on Friday morning, Thursday was a day for Bimbling and a short sail to work up a thirst, over ½ the fleet had arrived for the Thursday night “Take-away”, on Friday morning registration was completed without any fuss and the briefing was held on time. 48 eager sailors set out to sea, some for the first time to discover what Shoreham waves were really like.
