Report from the National Schools Sailing Association Regatta

Report on the National Schools Sailing Association Regatta by WYC Cadet Tom Oliver:
“After winning the Kent Schools Sailing Association topper team racing event earlier this year we were invited to represent Kent at the NSSA Single Handed Team Racing Event. The WYC cadets took a team of 3 sailors to Fairlop Waters on the 5th of October 2019. There were 21 teams of 3 people from all over the country ranging from school teams to regional champions, as well as the team of 3 from WYC - Tom Oliver, Alex Wilson and Wilf Taylor accompanied by their team manager - Ruth Oliver. There were 7 rounds on Saturday and the Whitstable team won 5 of the 7 putting them in 5th place after Saturday and in with a chance of reaching the semifinals on Sunday. Unfortunately, the first 2 races on Sunday were against the top 2 teams and we lost them. Moving on we lost another race and it came down to the final race as to whether the WYC team would be in the semi final playoffs or not. Unfortunately we lost this round and our final position was 12th out of 21, but we represented Kent and WYC with dignity and honour.”
Well done to the WYC Cadet team for getting to the National event and representing Kent well!
