News Tabitha Sets Sail as British Girls National Champion 08.09.2021

Many congratulations to Tabitha, Year 9, who over the summer competed in a number of sailing competitions including the European Championships in Cadiz in June followed by the British National Championships for Optimists – the leading event in the UK sailing calendar which attracts sailors from all over the world. Over a very full week of racing Tabitha finished as the British Girls National Champion.  She was sixth overall (girls and boys up to 15), the first girl overall and the second under 14 sailor (boys and girls). This achievement is even more incredible as, in the history of the event dating back to 2002, Tabitha is the third highest placed girl ever!

We wish Tabitha the best of luck in the international sailing competitions later in the year.
