Success in Yorkshire Youth Series

This weekend the Yorkshire and Humberside Youth Series Regatta was held high up on the Moors, in the shadow of the Ovenden Moor wind generator farm, at Halifax SC. The wind generators are well placed as it is always windy up there !
Yeadon were represented by Adam, in his Topper, and Matthew and Benjamin, in their Mirror.
Despite being not particularly well before hand Matthew and Benjamin sailed two good races and were either first or second Mirror, and were mid fleet in the overall results.
Adam however certainly found the conditions to his liking, so much so that he won the event !
Well done Adam !

The series goes on every weekend until July and is a great chance to race against other Juniors and it is a good training ground as Juniors from the Club have found in the past.
