In one month Ullman Sails customers had the best month you can imagine. Winning 4 National and International championships.
The Santa Cruz 27 Nationals in Richmond California with 14 boats were completely dominated by Ullman Sails. Gotcha sailed by Joe Hagen, John Ross and Chris Winnard won all but one race winning the event convincingly.

The only race they did not win was won by James Clappier and crew on Further.  Further also won the owner driver division as well as taking second overall.
At Whidbey Island Race Week in Oak Harbor Washington two championships were being run.  The Thunderbird International Championship and the Viper 640 Pacific Coast Championship.  Craig Burnell was looking for more speed earlier in the year and came over to Ullman Sails.  This paid off with Craig’s first International Championship beating out last years Champion from Canada.  In the Vipers it was a three way battle to the end with Ed Feo, Garrett Johns and James Sears.  Ed Feo with locomotion came out on top as well as all Ullman Sails in the top 3.  This is a fast growing fleet and it was great to see 10 boats up in the Northwest.
The end of July brought on the Santana 20 Nationals in Eugene Oregon.  With 19 boats this is still a great fleet and several National Champions returning.  Chris Winnard on Disaster Area dominated the fleet winning by 5 points and making it his 6th National title in the “Tuna 20’s”.  With 100% Ullman Sails Chris attributed his win to great speed all the way around the course.
