    Laser Qualifier Pwllheli 2018

    14th/15th April

    The final Laser qualifier of the season was held in Pwllheli and it was a tough event. On day 1, the Radial fleet only sailed 1 race and it was disappointing for me, finishing 21st which I later discarded. Sunday was more interesting with about 10 knots of wind all day and we managed to get 3 races in. Unfortunately, there wasn't the 30 knots forecasted so it was another tricky day. I scored a 20th, 11th and 14th putting me 15th overall. It was a bit disappointing in the end but some consistency over the qualifiers of moved me up to 6th in the Radial Youth Ladder. Lots to work on!

    RYA Youth Nationals 2018 Largs

    30th March - 6th April


    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

    Laser Qualifier Stokes Bay 2018



    10th/11th March 2018

    This weekend was the first Laser spring qualifier at Stokes Bay. There were
    3 races on Saturday, each with very varied conditions. The wind started off
    quite strong but died down by the afternoon. Overnight, I was 15th overall
    and the points were very close.
    Sunday was a similar wind strength but from a different direction. After a
    few general recalls and black flags, we sailed another 3 races. Overall, I
    managed to stay quite consistent. I ended up finishing 13th and learned lots
    from the weekend.
