It's less than a week to go until the 2018 Blaze Nationals, sponsored by Allen, takes place at the North Devon Yacht Club.

Allen is sponsoring the event with plenty of prizes, including goodies for the top 6 overall Blaze sailors, daily Allen Performance Challenge vouchers and prizes for the Fire and Halo fleets.

There will be plenty of coverage of the event on the Allen Facebook and Instagram pages. Liz Adams, Managing Director of Allen Brothers, said "If you're a Blaze sailor who can't get amongst the 47 already entered; make sure you check it out, it's going to make you wish you were there!" She then went onto say "We have been supplying the class boat builder, Hartley Boats, with our hardware for some time and it's good to see that we have become the go to choice for hardware within the Blaze fleet. We hope that with our support we can continue to help the class grow to new heights."

Allen Brothers manufactures performance sailing equipment from its headquarters in Essex, 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.
