Llangorse Club Youth Racing Circuit, South Wales 2016

Llangorse Club Youth Racing Circuit, South Wales 2016

What a fabulous turnout for the last of the CYRCs in the South West series. Thanks so much to all our competitors, volunteers and parents for helping make the day so special.

After a slightly delayed start, the wind filled in for a very competitive day of racing in light and shifty conditions. Plenty of chatter and banter on the race course with lots of happy sailors despite the more wintery weather!
Our Llangorse juniors sailors did themselves proud on home water with event wins in the Optimist Training and Optimist Silver fleets, plus wins in Topper Training, Topper Silver and Topper Gold fleets.
Shout outs go to prize winners Georgia Hughes, Osian James, Béa Sparks, Einion Gomm Weekes, Huw Jones, Cian Epstein, Tommy Willett, Seren Collier, Felix Denton, Duncan Lloyd Evans, Oliver Vowles, Ben Willett, Gwyn Jones, Rhys Jones and Oliver Smoult.
The event also brought the 2016 South Wales CYRC series to a close overall with 57 sailors taking part across all the events.  As well as event winners on Saturday, the Club can boast series winners in Optimist Training (Béa Sparks), Topper Silver (Tommy Willett) and Topper Gold fleet (Duncan Lloyd Evans) plus eight sailors in the podium places overall.  Those are big achievements and supporting our junior sailors as we did this weekend goes such a long way to help them improve and become good sailors – and of course they become proud representatives of our club.
Here are some photos from afloat and the prize giving. Enjoy!
