The SSI last week helped out at the RYA Youth Championships held at Weymouth this year. The weather was sunny with good winds forecast and the 390 plus competitors raced across 6 different boat fleets. The event was a huge success, Princess Anne was in attendance on the Thursday to give the competitors a boost and with Weymouth hosting the event again in 2015 the annual youth regatta is going from strength to strength.
Scotland’s own Jamie Calder took first place in the Laser Radial Gold fleet. The prize wasn’t just for the title however by winning the event Jamie (sailing in the Laser Radial class) now becomes the ISAF representative for team GB at the ISAF youth worlds which takes places in Tavira, Portugal from the 12-19 July 2014.
