Sponsored Sailors at the UK Laser National Championships

Our army of sponsored sailors were out in force at the recent Laser National Championships, now rebranded as the ILCA national championships.

In action were:

  • Sam Whaley
  • Ben Flower
  • James Foster
  • Chloe Barr
  • Lydia Barber
  • Jack Graham-Troll
  • Alice Davis

The sailors sailed across the three different fleets competing in the Standard, Radial and 4.7 fleets.

The standard and 4.7 fleet were competing over the first few days of the event and there were some fantastic results.

Jack Graham-Troll just missed out on another championship win and finished with a solid 2nd place. Alice Davis who is new to the Laser while she can't sail her 420 finished in a respectable 32nd.

The radial fleet were up next and due to the size of the fleet they had their own event later in the week. The fleet were also split into Gold and Silver fleets to manage numbers.

Chloe Barr finished in 12th place in the Gold fleet and Lydia Barber finished up 20th in the Silver fleet.

Well done to all of our sailors and customers who took part in the event over a very windy week.
