Ali sails to victory


Ali Holborn (9HR), took part in the RYA Youth National Sailing Championships 2019 at Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy last week. 

She had to compete across four days of racing; the last day of which was fought hard and close, but Ali triumphed and won the title “RYA U17 Girl Youth National Topper Champion 2019”.

Huge congratulations to Ali for her hard work and determination in preparing for and competing in this event.

Well done!

Also appearing at the Championships were: Alex Assirati Yr 9, Ben Adler Yr 8 St Osmunds… with us next year. Ben Richardson (Yr 11) in Laser 4.7. Oli Fellows and Will Adler Yr 12 in 29ers.

Ali achieved their best and most significant result.

This is the biggest youth sailing event in UK, with over 380 youth sailors taking part in Olympic Pathway Boats, Topper, Laser, 420, 29er Nacra Windsurfers and Foiling Kite Surfers!
