Princess Sofia Trophy

Princess Sofia Trophy

Sarah Ayton, Sarah Webb and Pippa Wilson also picked up silver in the Yngling event for Skandia Team GBR, on what was another day of testing conditions for sailors in Palma Bay.

For Sarah Ayton, Sarah Webb and Pippa Wilson, their silver medal marks their third straight podium finish at a major multi-class regatta, adding to their silver at the Rolex Miami Olympic Classes Regatta in January, and bronze at their first event as a trio at the Skandia RYA Sail for Gold Regatta in October last year.

 

They were unable to get the better of the American boat, helmed by Sally Barkow, in today’s medal race, but are brimming with confidence after their performance this week.

 

“It has been a really tricky week for all of us, I think as the results for the whole team have shown, but we’re really happy with our silver,” Ayton explained.

 

“The week has been a positive experience for us as a team, in particular the last part of the regatta which has generally been below six knots and is the range we have tended to underperform in in the past, so we’ve been encouraged by that.”

 

Shirley Robertson, Annie Lush and Lucy Macgregor finish their second ever Yngling event together in eighth place, while Skandia Team GBR’s development squad sailors Victoria Rawlinson, Emma Rawlinson and Sue Monson end their regatta in tenth place after some promising displays this week.
