Youth National Champions crowned


After five days of tricky competition, the RYA Youth National Championships and Trials drew to a close today (Saturday 14 April) at the Hayling Island Sailing Club.


The week ended just how it started – in very light wind conditions – and although all classes managed to leave the shore for their race areas, racing proved impossible for all but the RS:X class on the final day of competition.


The single race today in the RS:X class was enough to shake up the podium positions – Kirsten O’Callaghan (Hampton) was crowned girl’s champion in the class.

420 fleet-Imogen Stanley (Oxford) and Kate Macgregor (Poole) were crowned girl’s 420 national champions.


In the 29er fleet, girl’s crews occupy the top two steps of the podium – Frances Peters and Hannah Diamond of Hayling Island Sailing Club took gold and the youth national title, with Sophie Weguelin and Sophie Ainsworth in second place.

“With the winds having been so light, it’s been a really tricky week,” said Event Director Rob Andrews, “but I think we owe the race teams a huge debt of gratitude for squeezing the best out of the conditions and getting the sailors racing as much as they have done.


“Thanks also must go to the Hayling Island Sailing Club for their hospitality this week, and to the team of dedicated volunteers and parents, without whom this event simply couldn’t happen.”
