Southeast Sailboats is delighted to announce our sponsorship of GBR Youth Laser sailor Matt Beck. Matt recently defended his 4.7 UK National title, and came 8th overall in the 2017 4.7 Worlds in July.
Matt moved into the Laser 4.7 in April 2016 following a number of years sailing in the Optimist class, including representing GBR at the 2015 Optimist Worlds in Poland. Matt is a member of Bowmoor Sailing Club and a student of Hereford Sixth Form College. After a very successful 15 months in the 4.7 Class, which included winning the 2016/17 UK Ladder, Matt is transitioning to the Radial class. His key goals for 2018 include the RYA Youth Nationals, the UKLA Worlds and Euros Qualifiers and, hopefully, a number of International regattas.
This is what Matt had to say about Southeast Sailboats “Over the course of the last 12 months I’ve upgraded all of my control lines to systems supplied by Southeast Sailboats. The attention to detail and overall quality are brilliant. Often it’s the simple things which make the difference – the few of my favourites are the Clew Block with Toggle, the recently launched Double Puller Outhaul and stitching/sealing Mainsheet ends. Having the support of Southeast Sailboats over the coming year will be a great boost to my sailing”.
