Some of our pupils recently took part in the Itchenor Sailing Club Schools Week Championships.
The Schools Championships at Itchenor started in 1953 and this was the 65th year of the event. Typically the RS Fevas are raced by Year 8 and 9 pupils, with a maximum age limit of Year 10, and the Fireflies and 420’s by Sixth Formers , Years 11 and 10 and some experienced Year 9 pupils.
There were 104 boats entered, with six races in total over the two days. The pupils who took part were:
- Charlie South (8Sh) and Eliza South (7Sh) placed 30th
- Maddie Warwick (8St) whose final results placed her middle of the fleet 56th which was fantastic for her first time at the event, and sailing against some very experienced sailors
- Esme Greatorex (9Bu) and Toby Greatorex (7Bu) placed 75th
- Benjamin Jameson (9Bu) and Callum Budd (9An) placed 87th
Congratulations to all our pupils for their fantastic achievement.
