Manx Youth Sailing Squad 2016

Well, we’ve just finished our first training weekend with this years SIX brand new members!  Welcome to Charlie Whitbread (age 12), Peter Cope (age 9), Teddy Dunn (age 10), Henry Hotchkiss (age 10), Tom Whitbread (age 10) and Georgia Harding (age 10).  It is great to have so many new sailors and I have thoroughly enjoyed coaching them this weekend.  Already we are progressing in leaps and  bounds, after just a day and a half on the water we already have a really competitive little fleet!  The future is bright and I am really excited about the next few years for these guys.

They join Alec Cope and Ben Batchelor who have been in the Squad for four or maybe five years now.  Alec and Ben are both high ranked in the UK Tera circuit, Ben has been competing at the Tera Start of Seasons regatta in Northampton this weekend and has finished 8th overall.  I have high hopes that our new sailors will be in hot pursuit over the next couple of seasons.
