RYA British Youth Sailing Regional Championships

posted 7 Oct 2018, 09:10 by Caroline Payne
The RYA British Youth Sailing Regional Championships were held at venues around the country on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th of September.
Unfortunately for the London South East region, despite hundreds of sailors turning up on Saturday morning, the wind appeared not to get the memo. The Regatta Fleet managed to get out for a short (mostly paddling) race, but the main Championship Fleet stayed ashore.

Sunday brought much better sailing conditions (albeit a lot colder) and the 36 boats of the Regatta Fleet and 114 boats of the main fleet took to the water for a long day on the water. 

Congratulations to Alistair Jesseman for his outstanding performance, leading the Regatta Fleet in every race and coming home with the gold medal.
