I'm very pleased to announce that last week I won a bronze medal at the RYA Youth Nationals 2017, held in Hayling Island near Southampton.
It was a very tough week with a lot of close racing and although they weren't my favourite conditions I took a lot of things from the week and had a lot of fun at the same time!
A big well done to my brother who won gold convincingly in the Under-19 Laser Radial category, winning by over 28 points!
At the beginning of the month I also competed at the Princess Sofia Regatta, held on the island of Mallorca in the Mediterranean. After a slow start to my first senior event of the year, I was pleased to sail progressively better everyday after that and finished on a high in Gold fleet, knocking in a 10th and a 11th to finish 40th overall. For my first Princess Sofia regatta ever I am happy with the result and made some good steps forwards in my sailing.
I've now got a small break to rest and recover after the very busy last period before getting back into training and attending Delta Lloyd regatta at the end of May. I also have just received my brand new carbon top section so am very excited to go out on the water and test her out!
