Sailing: More success for squad members at Holyhead leg of North Wales CYRC

A group of talented sailors at Rydal Penrhos continued their impressive recent form as part of a regional competition.

Four members of the school’s thriving programme travelled to Holyhead Sailing Club to compete at the second leg of the North Wales Club Youth Racing Circuit series, which took place on Saturday, June 23.

The Year 5 duo of Freddie MacLaverty and Cieran Milligan produced another superb showing in the highly-competitive General Handicap Fleet, steering their RS Feva XL boat tremendously throughout to finish in second spot, and there was further success from a Rydal Penrhos perspective as Aidan Skinner secured third place in his Laser Radial.

Rounding off the achievements was Year 7 star Zac Roberts, who continued his excellent recent progression with a third-place finish in the Optimist Gold Fleet.

The squad will now begin preparing for the next leg of the CYRC at Red Wharf Bay Sailing Club on Saturday, July 7 as they go in search of further accolades throughout what is sure to be a busy summer of action.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “To see many of our young sailing squad members performing so well in a competitive environment is a testament to how well their skills are being developed by programme head Max Todd and his fantastic team.

“Each of them have demonstrated a superb enthusiasm and dedication each to get the very most out of their experience on the water, and this has definitely paid dividends when you look at the amount of wonderful achievement that they have recorded throughout the season.”
