Sailing: Fflur Pierce claims Tera silver at BYS Zone and Home Country Championships

A Preparatory School sailing prodigy continued her exceptional season of accolades with success at another national event.

Fflur Pierce, a Year 5 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, added to her impressive collection of medals at the British Youth Sailing Zone and Home Country Championships, which took place last month.

The talented ten-year-old turned in another highly accomplished performance to emerge with a silver medal from the Tera Fleet, which featured some of the most talented young sailors in the country.

It has been a memorable summer for the pupil, who made history at the Weymouth Nationals after becoming the first ever girl to win the U10 National Championship trophy.

She also got her first taste of international recognition alongside fellow Rydal Penrhos squad members Freddie MacLaverty and Keira Luke at the RS Tera World Championships, where she finished fifth 9-15 girl overall after a superb effort.

Head of Sailing Max Todd, said: “Fflur has demonstrated a great deal of progression this season, which is a testament to her dedication, passion and commitment to getting better every time she takes to the water.

“She works incredibly hard to improve and this has brought with it significant results on both the regional and national stage, and this all bodes very well indeed in terms of how much she can go on and achieve in the future if Fflur continues to show the right application.”
