Sailing Success At The ISA National Regatta
Princethorpe College sent a team of eight enthusiastic young sailors to the ISA National Regatta at Draycote Water on Thursday 12 October.
It was the first time the competition had been held at Draycote and that was too good an opportunity for Princethorpe’s sailors to miss.
Pupils competed in either the Main Fleet or Rookie events. Sailing conditions were light with the wind lessening throughout the day, adding to the tactical challenge of the competition, but the youngsters took it all in their stride and everyone had great fun.
Congratulations to Year 7, William Shaw, who claimed Silver in the Main Fleet (losing by just 1 point) and to Year 9, Harry Prance, who took Bronze in the Rookie Fleet.
Well done to everyone who took part. It is great to add another sport to the College’s competition schedule.
