JUNIOR REGATTA 2022
The weekend saw an excellent group of young sailors take to the waters of Gurnard Bay.On Saturday, the more experienced ILCA, Pico and Tera sailors battled it out in fresh SW 18-20 knots. This created a great show for the spectators and lots of smiles on the faces of the sailors when they came back ashore.
The excellent race officer team of Mark Harrison and Liz Haines managed to get 5 races in with one discard.
Prize giving was held in the evening for the Saturday sailors followed by dinner and excellent evening entertainment.SATURDAY RESULTS

There was a quick turnaround from the normal GSC Sunday morning racing to get the regatta fleet out on the water. Wind was breezier than we had hoped at 15 - 17 knots so the decision was made to put all the sailors on the Tera Mini Sails, with mast floats.
On the committee boat, Luke and Gretel set some excellent courses and got 4 races in with one discard.
We had many of our instructors on safety boats helping and encouraging the sailors towards the back complete the courses. It was amazing to see them grow in confidence and the fleet get closer and closer every race.1st place Sean
2nd place Ran
