We are thrilled to celebrate some recent brilliant sporting feats achieved by our pupils in their sporting commitments outside of school life. Congratulations to all.
Jake is part of the RS Aero UK Youth team and recently competed in the first RS Aero Youth World championships. The championships were held at Weymouth National Sailing Centre, with 12 nations represented in a five day event with 73 participants. There were three races with mixed conditions, with wind at 25kn and 0kn. Congratulations to Jake on his two top 10 results, which left him in the position of 16th overall and 10th for age under 19. A full report of the event is available here.
Jake says “The event was great fun, made good by the close bond our British Youth team has after training together all winter. The racing was brilliant with just inches in it.”
