RYA Volvo Youth National Championships 2012
Last week saw the largest RYA Volvo Youth National Championships ever with 390 competitors across 6 classes of boat. The event, held in Pwllheli- Wales, represents one of the most important national events held annually. The event included 9 races across 5 days of tough sailing; the conditions were particularly variable giving rise to very close results.
Izzy and I secured the Ladies 420 Bronze medal coming 13th over all. The result also formed the third part of the 420 Class Selection Series placing us as 4th Ladies and 9th Overall after 18 races. This lead to our selection for the OPEN AND LADIES’ WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Lake Neusiedler See, Austria, 27th July – 5th August 2012.
