On Monday Mat Belcher and Malcolm Page will be defending their world championship title again.
“It does not seem that long ago that we had to defend our last world title in Perth five months back but the time has come, said Mat”
Mat and Malcolm have been training in Barcelona ahead of the World Championships starting on Sunday 13th May. Winning this World Championship will make it three in a row for the pair.
“Malcolm and I are looking forward to the opportunity to defend our World title and hopefully complete the triple,” explained Mat, “We have the form and experience but time will tell, things don't always go to plan."
“The conditions have been great and we are expecting a mix of conditions, a vast contrast to the cold and wet conditions in Weymouth, UK, at the moment,” said Mat
The 97 boat fleet will be split into three fleets for the 13 races spread across seven days.For more information on the 470 Worlds head to 470 World Championships.
Mat and Malcolm have also released supporter shirts. They have designed the shirts with Zhik and are selling them through their donation page.
