AHPC would like to welcome Darren Bundock and Carolijn Brouwer to the AHPC team. These multiple Olympians and World Champions will headline the new force for the C2 and VIPER in Europe. Bundock and Brouwer, the two B’s, will bring to the venture the dedication, attention to detail and passion that helped them become two of the best and most recognized Olympic sailors in the world.

No Convincing

After a quick test on the VIPER and the C2 Darren and Carolijn knew these would be their boats of choice for the future. 2B where so confident in the performance and quality that they signed on to be our European representative in selling and promotion. Now 2B not only sail our boats but they also sell them.


Since the start of the year “we have been testing the C2 with some of the world best catamaran sailors” and now you know who they are. AHPC has been working close with 2B and between Bundock, Brouwer, Goodall and Bruwin we have work over the boats from top to bottom to bring you the best sails, the best platform, the best systems… simply the best boat.


2B Sailing will immediately be acting as the AHPC European distributor. Based out of the Netherlands, this venture will bring the highest level of service and support to our European customers, something that has always been difficult for an Australian based company. Look for the 2B team at you next major event!!!

Media Release
For immediate release
03 March 2010


Rivals on the water for years, multiple Olympians and sailing world champions Darren Bundock and Carolijn Brouwer have joined forces in a new business venture set to create waves for a new generation of sailors.

With the Tornado catamaran dropped from the Olympic program for 2012, the talented multihull sailors are starting a new chapter in their lives, which they hope will help spark a resurgence of interest in the sport of sailing.

The long-term goal of the pair is to establish a circuit for the best young sailors in the world complete with professional teams, professional racing, professional coaching and professional media coverage.

Australian Bundock along with Brouwer, who represented both Belgium and The Netherlands in the international arena, will invest their years of experience at the forefront of multihull sailing to make the venture successful.

“We love sailing and want everyone else to love it as much as we do and the best way to do that is to find a class of boat that is attractive to sailors due to its high-performance and speed but is also media and spectator friendly,’’ Brouwer said. “And we believe we have done that with the C2 Formula 18 and the Viper F16.’’

Two-time Olympic silver medallist Bundock and female multiple world champion and round-the-world sailor Brouwer have formed 2B Sailing through which they will distribute in Europe the C2 Formula 18 and the Viper F16 _ two multihulls set to take European waters by storm and given the stamp of approval by two of the best multihull sailors on the planet.

Bundock and Brouwer, the two B’s, will bring to the venture the dedication, attention to detail and passion that helped them become two of the best and most recognised Olympic sailors in the world and will also act as dealers in The Netherlands and Belgium.

The C2 Formula 18 is a high-performance racing machine set to impress with a spinnaker, double trapeze and square-top mainsail and set to thrill with its capacity for speed.

The two-person Viper has been designed as a potential feeder class and pathway to high-performance sailing for a younger generation of sailors, both male and female.

“These boats are seriously fun, seriously great to sail and fill a gap in the market,’’ Bundock said.
“We see the Viper as a problem solver as it is the perfect boat for youth, women or mixed crews with an ideal weight combination of between around 115 to 145 kilos.”

“The C2 Formula 18 is just a weapon. It is fast, state-of-the-art and so exciting to sail. It is a boat designed to be a winner on and off the race track.’’

In its first ever regatta, the C2 Formula 18 exceeded even Bundock and Brouwer’s expectations when it raced to a first and second in the Australian championships over the Southern Hemisphere summer. Just weeks later the Viper F16 caused heads to turn when it claimed line honours in a marathon in Sydney, Australia, beating the bigger Formula 18’s and Tornados.

“We believe these boats are the way forward for sailing,’’ Brouwer said. “They are fast, spectacular and fun. That is what sport is about.’’
