Latest NewsOlympic Sailors support RYA Scotland Zones

The RYA Zone Championships held at Largs on 24/25 September brought not only some of the best young sailors to the Championships Club but also brought two of Scotland’s Olympic Squad members, Luke Patience and Charlotte Dobson to the event.
Whilst the first day of the event was called off for too much wind.  Whilst the one hour postponement was in place sailing enthusiasts young and old were regaled by stories and top tips from the Olympic sailors.  Luke Patience, one half of the GBR 470 team enthralled with his Olympic memories and also gave tips on avoiding sharks to one young sailor. 
Charlotte Dobson, one half of Team GB’s 49er FX class was just as inspiring, talking about and answering questions on her experiences at the south American event as well as her experiences sailing. Charlotte said “it is great to be back in Largs, where it all started”.
The Olympians were also on hand on Sunday to coach the competitors and give advice on better sailing.
