World Team Announced

The GBR Cadet World Team was announced at Stone SC on the 23rd September for the final weekend Open Meeting of the year

The event started with light airs which stayed most of the day. A sea breeze filled in later in the afternoon and the 32 boats entered got in 3 good races. Overnight leaders Alex Warrington and Anna Wootton from Thorpe Bay and Waldringfield were holding off Alex Corby and Robert Keen from Fishers Green and Alton Water. Everyone enjoyed the evening disco and a chance to congratulate the world team.

Day 2 saw the weather change with a steady 23 knots and some big surf to play in. Alex and Robert put in some top class sailing but were being hunted down by fellow Fishers Green pairing of Josie Gummer and Aaron Chadwick. The overall results finished that way with Alex Warrington and Ellie Wootton in 3rd. What a weekend for Alex Corby and Robert Keen who not only won the Open Meeting but took a clean sweep of the Eastern Series Trophy, The Southern Series Trophy and the Ian Craig Trophy!
