End of season – already

Here we are suddenly in September and I’m asking myself where the last 8 weeks of youth sailing have gone. We must have been having so much fun we missed it! This summer has been great, every week has been enjoyed by both students and staff. We’ve even had a few firsts here this summer. Alex, Tom, Izzy and Hannah have been the first to complete a Sailing with Spinnakers course, we had a great week in the 420s with spinnakers and trapezes being used and a basking shark or two as well!

James and Greg went away to compete at the RS Tera European Championships at Lake Garda, Italy. Greg finished 3rd in the under 12s and James finished 6th in the age 12 – 16 fleet.

We also had some amazing bodyboarding days – so good that even the instructing team were in enjoying the waves. Watch out for James’ amazing body surfing too!!

Alex went for the RYA Dinghy Instructor course at Plas Menai, Anglesey in August and successfully passed the course. Congratulations Alex, we look forward to getting you on the instructing team next summer.

And there is was gone. 2009 one the whole a good summer. Thanks to everyone who has been involved.
