junior club champs report

Junior Champs

A breezy end to June saw 30 of our junior sailors take to the water for the 2012 Junior Championships. For several it was their first race event but enthusiasm and smiles abundant.

In race 1 Chloe Felton stamped her mark on the event with a win closely followed by Olli Cawthorne who was having his first race in a 4.7 Laser and Olivia Kennington 3rd in the Optimist.

For race 2 the wind increased to 15 knots with some big gusts. This time Emma Kindon and Sam Smith were flying in the 420 taking the win with Olli 2nd, Chloe 3rd and Amy Munro 4th in the Topper.

A close battle in the short 3rd race saw Chloe take the win from Emma and Sam followed by Olli then Amy. Jack and Emma Morris did really well in the Mirror sailing very consistently and posting one of many 5th place results.

So with all to play for the sailors had to wait until after the first Club Regatta Cup race (which several juniors took part in too!!) before the final race 4.

An exciting finish had everyone onshore on the edge of their seats as Chloe took the win and the Championship from Emma and Sam followed by Olli then Amy.

Well done to all who took part. Several sailors took part in the 2nd Regatta Cup race making 6 races for the day! I'm sure they all slept well that night!
