RYA Youth Nationals 2019

RYA Youth Nationals 2019

This year, the Youth Nationals were held at WPNSA. It was a tough week with a huge variety of conditions and very close, small fleet racing. 

The week started with a huge first day and the breeze made for some tough racing. Unfortunately, there was so much wind that only 1 race was sailed. Day 2 was much lighter and all 3 races were completed but on day 3, heavy fog meant that the day was abandoned after a long wait around. The race committee made up for this on the following day by running 4 races in glamour sailing conditions followed by 1 very light wind race on the final day.

The mixture of conditions made the week very challenging and I have definitely learnt a lot from it. I generally managed to stay consistent throughout the week which I am very happy about, with my best race result as 2nd. 

I finished 4th overall and 1st U19 making me the U19 national champion which was a nice way to round off the week. However, I was slightly disappointed not to make the podium so Iíll be looking to do that in the future. Well done especially to Joe Drake who sailed an outstanding event and deservingly won overall.
