RYA Regional Junior Championships

The weather wasn’t as favourable for this weekend with high wind delaying races.
Well done to Felicity & Ben Angell for the 1st & 2nd places respectively in the Tera class, and to Felix McMullan for his 4th place in the Topper Class with many other DWSC sailors doing well too.

Trophies from RYA for being the most improved club for youth and junior sailing events
At the weekend we were awarded the ‘Midland’s Regional Junior Development Championship Trophy’ in recognition of our increase in the number of home competitors entered into the weekend’s event.  This really shows the hard work put in by our Y&J leaders coming to fruition as our junior’s are encouraged to enter these events.
