Report from the KSSA Topper Team Racing event on Saturday 15th May

This weekend was another busy one for WYC’s youth sailors. 2 teams of 4 young sailors took the trip to Westbere Lake to sail in the KSSA Topper Team Racing event, defending the trophy that we won in 2019! The forecast was very light and those of you that have sailed at Westbere before will understand that this caused some very challenging racing conditions in judging the shifts and gusts. With 14 teams taking part from all over Kent, over 40 sailors, it was a very tough competition.
Both Whitstable teams won 3 and lost 3 races in their flight, and so unfortunately didn’t make it into the semi-final, but they had fun competing and talking to other young sailors from different clubs. Team racing is a challenging concept to understand for regular club racers, and for some of our sailors this was their first chance at it, so they did very well and had great fun trying something new!
A huge credit goes to all the organisers from KSSA as well as the parents and taxi drivers from WYC that all help make these events possible for the our up and coming sailors. Photos can be seen on the KSSA website or on the WYC facebook page.

Note from the Rear Commodore Sailing: “A special thanks must go to Tom Oliver, for being a really great Team Captain and WYC Cadet Class Captain, and for also providing this report!”
