EPSC Sailors Qualify for NSSA Regatta 2019

NSSA Trials

Trials were held at Haversham SC on 17 November 2018 to select 25 young sailors to represent Milton Keynes & Bucks Youth Sailing Association (MKBYSA) at the National Schools Sailing Association (NSSA) Regatta at Weymouth in July 2019.

Usually at this event the wind is blowing a gale and with it, horizontal rain, but this year, the wind was a steady breeze and there was no rain.

The MKBYSA team for 2019 included four EPSC sailors:

Elizabeth Richardson (Laser Radial)

Ben Thornerly (Laser Radial)

Tom Sayer (Laser Radial)

Henry Sayer (Laser 4.7)

Fleet Racing

Also at this event, the young sailors competed in 3 Fleet Races, each race lasting 45 minutes with Trophies for the Slow Fleet (Laser 4.7’s) and Fast Fleet (Laser Radials).

EPSC sailors were amongst those collecting the trophies.
