A huge congratulations to Opti superstar Sebastian (Seb) Kempe for a sterling performance at the 2018 Opti North American Championships, where he took 2nd place overall. Based in Bermuda, Seb has been a long-time loyal Doyle supporter and we are so proud to see his hard work and sportsmanship paying off.

The event was hosted by the Vallarta Yacht Club in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico from 26 - 30 of June 2018. As one of the biggest continental opti regattas in the world with a fleet of 149 and 14 different countries, this was Seb's highest international achievement thus far.

Doyle's One Design Manager Andrew Brown who has worked closely with Seb for the past 3 years gives his praises, "Well done to Seb Kempe for his great result at the Optimist North American Championships. It has been a real pleasure watching Sebastian’s career grow through the hard work he and his BER teammates have be doing."

Seb's father Somers Kempe comments,"Thanks Andrew, kids have put in a tremendous amount of training. Just glad to see it start to pay off. Keep up the good work Doyle!"

Next up is the 2018 Optimist World Championship from 26 August - 06 September in the Mediterranean.
