    Sykes has a strong history in pair and doubles racing at World Championships. We are confident this will continues with our latest addition to the Sykes fleet: Mould 214.

    M214 is a pair/double designed for heavyweight women and lightweight men and is at the forefront of hull design for its weight category. Through our testing, modeling and on-water results, we have measured a significant advancement on existing designs on the market, and most noticeable, the improved stability achieved alongside a more efficient hull shape.
