Sevenoaks Sailors Win BSDRA Midland Championships
Congratulations to our sailing A and B teams on a tremendous performance in the year’s first team racing competition.
The first school team racing competition of the new school year took place at Farmoor Reservoir on 5 October with 21 teams from 17 different schools competing. Sevenoaks entered two teams, both of which were competing for the first time.
The day presented some challenging conditions with light winds and tight racing. Sevenoaks B ended up in 13th place after the league stage, with the A team topping the standings with a 100% record and advancing to the semi-finals.
The semi-final vs Winchester College was a very close-fought affair, coming down to the last few metres of the deciding race with Sevenoaks emerging 2-1 victors. They went on to face RGS Guildford in the final where, in a repeat of the semi, they lost the first race but fought back strongly to take the next two and the overall title 2-1. A great start to the new year for our new teams!
