Success at Southern’s for Manx Youth Sailing Squad

Ffinlo Wright and Ben Batchelor competed at the RS Tera Southern Championship this weekend in Highcliffe, Brighton.

Having won the recent Northern Champs at his home Club Ben was hungry for a good result at the Southern’s too. His best individual race result was 2nd, but overall he had sailed a consistent series to finish in the prizes in 3rd place overall.

Ffinlo found the competition more tough in the Pro fleet, he did manage to score a race win on the the Sunday but with mixed results Ffinlo finished in 7th place overall.

This is a very good effort from the lads who are hoping for National and World Championship success this season…
