More Junior Successes

A number of Yeadon Juniors took part in the recent RYA Zone Championships and the RYA Squad selection trails for this coming winter’s training programme and I am very pleased to tell you that this year that the following have been selected for the various squads

Luke has been selected for the North Topper Zone Squad ( an area from Northampton and Rutland in the South, up to Derwent Reservoir and Tees and Hartlepool in the North )

Matthew and Benjamin, followed up last years selection for the Mirror Zone Squad with selection for the Zone Squad again, except this year RYA have consolidated the various areas and formed a National Mirror Zone Squad from all the areas

William joined us this year, to get involved in our Tuesday Night’s and to sail with our other Juniors, although he has done most of his sailing at Ripon with his family. He too has been selected for the Mirror Zone Squad, crewing another lad from Ripon, as also have his two sisters who aren’t members here.

This means they will all be sailing and training all over the winter period ( one weekend a month ), honing their skills and getting some great experience, and also for the Mirrors spending lots of time travelling to the deep south, despite half the squad and the chief coach being all northern based !

Anyway “ Well Done and Congratulations to you all !
The rest of us will need to watch out next season !!!!!!!!!!!
