8 members of the Youth Squad completed 2 races today in very light and challenging winds. Georgina Craig and Jonathan Connor were on the water for the first time at the club this year. Robin Crawley finished his first ever races so well done to him.
The fleet was led by Sam Hall in his laser, but Joe Watkins sailed well and was only half a minute behind Sam on corrected times. There was a battle in the topper fleet with Jonathan Connor (who is used to slightly bigger boats these days), Lewis Tyson, William Coulthard and James Springell fighting for the mid-fleet places.
The main learning point this week was not to sail too close to the wind when there is very light wind. Sail off the wind a little bit and get some speed up as it is essential to have speed before trying to tack.
