    Laser Nationals Plymouth 2018 blog post

    For me, the Laser Nationals were very challenging and I felt like I struggled all week. Nevertheless, I tried to make sense of each day and learn from them all. There were light to medium winds all week consistenly from the same direction which meant that racing was very similar and frustrating at times. Day 2 was abandoned due to a lack of wind but, apart from this, we sailed every day. I finished 34th overall in the Radial fleet and only scored an 18th as my best result for the week. This was obviously very disappointing for me. Iím now looking forwards to the Radial Youth Worlds in Kiel, Germany.

    Lymington Laser Youth Open 2018 30th June/1st July

    The Lymington Youth Laser Open was held this weekend in lots of sun but unfortunately not much wind. Day 1 consisted of only 2 races which I found very challenging as there was so much tide. I scored a 12th and 15th in these which was disappointing. A 3rd race was attempted which was going well for me but the wind soon died and it was abandoned. Day 2 was better for me and it started with a bit more wind. I was able to win the only race of the day and I was eventually able to get my strategy right. However, the day was soon abandoned afterwards due to not enough wind. This put me in 7th overall. Not the best weekend for me but it has given me plenty to do.

  • Laser Radial Youth Squad Summer Training 31st May/3rd June

    Laser Radial Youth Squad Training 31st May/3rd June blog post

    From the 31st May to the 3rd June, I spent the end of my half term training in Weymouth as part of the youth summer squad. The camp was very useful for me as the worlds approach and I learned lots from the coaches and sailing with the others. It was quite a light wind 4 days which was accompanied by lots of towing around in the fog too! Overall, it was a great few days and Iím looking forwards to doing it again this weekend.

  • Laser Qualifier Pwllheli 2018

    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.

    Lymington Laser Open February 2018


    24/25th February

    This weekend, I was racing at the Lymington Laser Open in a Laser Radial
    fleet of 27 boats. This was my first sail in the new boat and, although it
    took some time to get used to, it was great. Both days were quite windy but
    it was very cold. On Saturday, racing began in around 18 knots of wind and I
    scored 8th, 4th and 15th the day putting me 5th overnight. Sunday was up to
    around 23 knots and was a similar wind direction for most of the day. I
    scored 1st, 6th and 4th meaning I dicscarded my 15th and finished 5th
    overall and 3rd male. Overall, it was a good start to the season and a great
    weekend in the new boat.
