Brian Keane's SAVASANA 2014 J80 World Champion!!
Brain Keane and his exceptional crew on Hull 1123, SAVASANA, captured the 2014 J80 World Championship!
The Worlds were a hard fought event, with conditions across the spectrum. Racing began with light shifty conditions in the beginning of the week, to big breeze on the final day! It was anyone's event coming into the last day, with multiple boats within striking distance. However, when the dust settled, Keane's consistancy throughout the event proved too much for the competition!
