Dan and I sailed at the Autumn Champs at WPNSA on the 30th of September and 1st of October. The weekend was quite breezy and we were lucky enough to share the course with the 470 and Finn class – this was one of their Olympic selectors.
We completed 7 races over the weekend – 5 on the Saturday and 2 on the Sunday – this was due to a building wind and fog.
We sailed consistently through the series and we were very happy with our result – we feel as though our speed improved and our starting had got better compared to how we performed in Athens.
We managed to finish 4th overall and 3rd Open boat , this has meant that we have been selected for the 2017/2018 420 Youth Squad. We are happy to have been selected for this as it was one of our goals and hopefully it will help us to improve over the winter ready for next season!

The Sailing Committee has been asked to remind all sailors of proper trolley etiquette, especially those sailing off of the beach slipway nearest the club. Once you have launched your boat, please clear the trolley off of the slipway to enable those launching after you or landing before you to do so easily.
