Sailing squad honoured at second annual Awards Ceremony

Rydal Penrhos’ Sailing squad were recognised for their incredible efforts throughout the season at a special event.

The school’s second annual Sailing Awards took place earlier this month, with plenty of awards presented to Prep and Senior sailors that have demonstrated success and progress during sessions on the water and at various regional and national competitions.

Will Glanville scooped the Most Improved Novice Sailor thanks to his outstanding commitment, with Fflur Pierce picking up the Most Improved Prep Sailor to continue her incredible list of achievements for someone so young.

The Most Improved Junior Sailor honour went to the hugely talented Llion Morris, and Bella Rutherford’s progression was acknowledged with the Most Improved Senior Sailor distinction.

GB 29er Youth Squad members Zac Blomeley and Ewan Luke were jointly-given the Ronald Grimes Award for Sailing Achievement after another standout campaign, and the pair were re-awarded their full colours in appreciation of their ability to inspire the entire squad.

Rounding off the achievements was Josh Manning, who was presented with Half Colours as a result of his outstanding overall influence on the set-up.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “It has been another incredible year of achievement for our Sailing provision, which continues to benefit significantly from the leadership of programme leader Max Todd and the hard work of Petrina Blomeley and Dan Rippon.

“We are fortunate to find ourselves in a stunning part of the world here at Rydal Penrhos, and with our beach boatyard just a short walk from the school site it is something our pupils take full advantage of and are thriving doing so.”
