Back from an epic week at the Youth Nationals on Hayling Island!
It was great to have all the different classes of boat at one event and to see all my friends again. We had lush weather and a good mix of wind and wave conditions. During the week there was also some talks about Olympic pathways and Keelboat racing which really inspired me, especially the fact that Sarah Dempsey spoke at one of them!
In the end we finished up in 24th out of 40 boats which was within our aim :) For us it was a process regatta so we worked on our starting and communication and by the end of the week we managed to get some really good results in which gave us the confidence we need for the final selector for the euros in 2 weeks time :)
You can take a look at the videos, pictures, and press releases on the event website to get a feel for what it was like.
