What a fantastic week at the 2014 Volvo Gill Optimist British Open and National Championships in Weymouth!
Congratulations to Lennert Steelandt (BEL) and Arnau Gelpi (ESP) who took the Open Senior and Junior titles respectively. For the GBR sailors it was the Girls who triumphed with Vita Heathcote, Senior British National Champion (6th senior overall)& Alexandra Schonrock Junior British Champion (2nd Junior overall). In Regatta fleet Joshua Means took the title.
They barely had time to unpack (in fact some didn't!) before the GBR Junior Irish team set off to the CH Marine Irish Optimist Nationals at Royal Cork Yacht Club.
A great set of results saw 6 GBR sailors in the top ten in the Junior Fleet, with William Heathcote leading the team 3rd overall.
Many senior GBR sailors and some Regatta fleet sailors also made the journey. Vita added to her recent trophy haul winning the Senior Gold and Open Senior Championship.
For four of the European Team, there has been a week to rest and recover but they have now arrived in Ledro, Italy, for the European Team Racing Championships. Good luck to them!
The Royal Corinthian Otters hosted the championship at Burnham this year, assisted by the Burnham Sailing Club. 12 entered the race fleet, with entrants from Cam SC and Hunts as well as from the Blackwater Sailing Club and local boats. The regatta fleet had 22 boats enter with a wide range of experience.
