Sailing Team Captain Holly Blogs about the Firefly Inland Nationals.

Last weekend members of Stamford Sailing Team including, Frankie Nicholson, Issy Leetch, Alice Lucy, Ollie Fraser, Holly Jones, Ellie Hattam and Ewan McAnally competed in the Firefly Inland Nationals. The team had two great days of racing in challenging, windy conditions, racing against a large fleet containing several firefly national champions.

The weekend was very successful with Ewan coming 1stunder 18 helm and Issy coming 1st under 12 helm. We were all very happy to be almost catching Dr Crookell who also raced! (Well done Ewan for beating him in some of the races!).

Overall, the weekend was a great way for us to improve our boat speed in fleet racing which will help us greatly in team racing competitions next season. We would all like to thank Dr C for entering us and organising boats and logistics for us entering the event.  We all really appreciate his efforts.
