CLEAN SWEEP FOR U14s IN RYA's NW TOUR!
Published 6:27pm on 26 Oct 2021
After their first year competing around the North West in the RYAs North West Junior & Youth Travellers series, Team Redesmere's juniors secured well-deserved 1st Overall and 1st Girl in the U14 classification. The RYA NWJYT is a series of eight events at clubs in the North West for young sailors in any class of boat and, in a close fought season, it came down to results in the final event, which was held at Leigh & Lowton SC on 16th October.
Congratulations to both Thomas and Poppy from all at Redesmere - this year has laid the foundations for them to follow in the footsteps of fellow Redesmere sailors who also first started their sailing campaigns in the NWJYT, including
- Elliot Hanson, 2021 Olympic Laser (ILCA 7) sailor
- Anya Haji-Michael, 2021 Olympic Transition Team member and 2019 Womens National Champion in the Laser Radial (ILCA 6)
- Oliver Davenport, international Solo sailor
- Tom Brindley, currently competing nationally and internationally in the Laser (ILCA 7), having previously won NWJYT three times in succession.
