Last weekend saw the National Schools Sailing Association (NSSA) (https://nssa.org.uk/) Inland Championships at DWSC. Pictured above you will see some of the DWSC 20 knot Squad who entered the event. Results were outstanding for the DWSC 20 Knot Squad
James O’donoghue 1st Overall
Kyle Bird 2nd Overall (Youngest 20 Knot Squaddie competing at only 10)
Ruari Barber-Smith 5th Overall (5th and only sailed on Sunday)
James and Kyle dominated this fleet with wins in 9 out of the 11 races
Main Topper Fleet
Daniel Chattock 6th Overall with best position 4th
Jade Goulder 11th Overall best race 6th (This was Jade’s first solo event)
Sol Thornton best result was 3rd (Sol was only able to sail a few races as it is GCSE time:-()
Will and James Taylor in their Feva were only able to sail one race
I think you will agree a great result for DWSC with some very good developing sailors that we all need to watch out for.
A special thanks goes to Sue Risbridger for all her efforts with this team and being there all weekend with coaching and encouragement.
