  • Laser Qualifier Lowestoft 2018

    Laser Qualifier Lowestoft 2018

    The 2nd autumn laser qualifier was held at Lowestoft and the weekend started with big waves and some big breeze! It was a tough day with tide having a big effect on the racing. My results were 16th, 14th and 15th. Day 2 began with very light winds and there was tide running down the course which made for a very long beat. The wind built later in the day and we had a good 5th race. My results were (20th) and 11th. This mean I finished in 16th overall.

  • Laser Qualifer South Shields 2018

    Laser Qualifer South Shields 2018

    The first autumn qualifier of the season was held at South Shields last weekend. Day 1 was around 18 knots of wind and quite shifty with some big gusts too. This made for some very interesting racing and I scored 14th (16th) and 15th. Day 2 was pretty similar with even bigger shifts and varying wind strength. I had a better day and I scored 9th, 15th and 11th putting me 14th overall out of a very strong field. Overall, I am happy with my first national in the laser standard and Iím hoping to improve on this result for the next 2 qualifiers.

  • 2018 Laser Radial Youth Worlds Kiel Germany

    2018 Laser Radial Youth Worlds Kiel Germany

    This year, the Laser Radial Youth Worlds were held in Kiel, Germany. It was a great event overall although I had some highs and lows. Day 1 was around 16 knots of wind and I was in the green fleet. I managed to score 33rd and 10th which I was happy about. Day 2, unfortunately, was very light winds and racing was postponed for a while but when we finally raced, I scored 58th and 48th which I was very disappointed with. The next day was also disappointing and I scored 53rd and 42nd in the light winds. This meant that I had only qualified for bronze fleet out of the four 67/68 boat fleets. The final series, although tough, went much better for me as we had more wind for the next two days. I scored 22nd, 18th, 6th and 28th. On the last day, one light wind race was started which I was winning at the second windward mark before it was abandoned and we were sent in as a storm came through. I finished the week in 13th in bronze fleet and 148th out of 269 overall. It was a shame to finish off my Laser Radial career like this but now I am getting ready for the UK autumn qualifiers in the Laser Standard.
