RYA Youth Nationals 2018 Largs
30th March - 6th April
Author: Krishan Bhogal
The youth nationals this year was held in Largs, Scotland and was a frustrating week with only 3 days sailing. In the Radial boys fleet, racing started on day 3 in about 18 knots and we completed 2 races. I scored 5 and 8. Going into day 2, I was 6th and was looking to move up the results but changeable conditions meant it was a tricky day and I came out with 8,13,(20) and 2. I held 6th place overnight and in the final day I scored 2 and 2 closing the gap to 5th to just 1 point in a very windy day. It was disappointing to be so close to the top 5 but the conditions over the week had made it very challenging. Congratulations to Jake Bowhay who won the Laser Radial boys fleet in a very close finish. I have learned lots to take forward from the event
