After winning the competition to represent Claires Court in a bid to represent the London & South East Region in the RYA eSailing Spring Championship, senior boy Sam Walton sailed through (excuse the pun) the regional heats on Wednesday, qualifying for the regional finals on Friday. As the original field was whittled down from over 500 to just the top 19 in the South East of England, Sam took to the virtual water alongside Maidenhead Sailing Club-mate Ian Stone to compete in a series of five races. 
Despite winning two of the races, Sam just missed out, coming in third overall. While it wasn't quite the result we had all hoped for, we have to say well done Sam for getting so far in the competition!
MSC will also be celebrating and commiserating in equal measure with two of their members in the top three!   

Well done Sam!
