    UK Laser Nationals 2019

    Far from my best week at the UK Laser NationalsÖ I finished 10th overall, 5th U21 and 1st U19. It was a very tricky week and ultimately some big scores cost me. There is plenty for me to take away from this event and I will be better next time. It was still a great weeks sailing and the event was very well run.

  • 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.

  • UKLA Spring Qualifier WPNSA 2019

    UKLA Spring Qualifier WPNSA 2019

    Last weekend was the first Laser qualifier of the year and it was intense! Saturday was about 20 knots all day and shifty. The race committee had already decided that we would do 4 races that day because the forecast for Sunday was definitely unsailable. I sailed quite a consistent day starting with an 18th. In the 2nd race I also finished 18th. Then the wind began to die and went hard left for the next 2 races generally. I finished 17th and 16th meaning I finished 19th overall and 1st U19. Each race was closely contested through the whole fleet. I felt like it was a solid performance from myself but nothing special and Iíll be looking to improve this result this weekend at Stokes Bay.
