Four ESC sailors joined the best of British Youth Sailing at HISC for the 5-day RYA Youth Championships.

Conditions were challenging with a light start giving way to ‘Windy Wednesday’, keeping all sailors on their toes.

For three of our younger sailors who are still technically Juniors (U16 in 2017), this was their first taste of Youth events and boats, and as expected all fleets were incredibly competitive.

Eve Townsend teamed up with Lymington sailor Hattie Rogers in the 29er and achieved a creditable 16th out of 62, Henry Chandler and Louis Johnson enjoyed their first event in a 29er achieving 4th in the Silver Fleet, 35th out of 62 overall and Ben Tweedle made the transition to the Olympic RS-X class achieving an impressive 9th out of 18.
