Gwen Sargent (8Burrows) and Johnny Sargent (7Burrows) have had a great summer of dinghy training and racing. It started with the Optimist UK National Championship at Pwllheli, North Wales, then the Irish Nationals at Kinsale Yacht Club, and finished with the Late Summer Championship at Poole Yacht Club where Johnny came 25th and 20th boy and Gwen came 60th and 17th girl out of 180 boats.
Johnny recently raced at Burghfield Sailing Club and at Bosham Sailing Club where he came second. Gwen helmed in the Tasar National Championship at Hayling Island Sailing Club where she won the first youth helm trophy. Both Gwen and Johnny are looking towards the RYA Regional Youth Championship and the End of Season Championship. We wish them every success.
