The Sevenoaks A team won the British Schools Team Racing National Championships after a stellar performance where they didn’t lose a single race through three days of competition. This rounded off an incredible season in which they won every school and youth level event they entered. They are now reigning GBR U19 Youth National Champions and GBR School National Champions – only the second time a school team has held both these titles.
The B team also performed well at the British Schools Team Racing National Championships, finishing seventh overall- they were just one win off fourth place. In our two teams at the nationals we had nine girls out of 12 sailors – our B team was an all-girls team – great in a sport that is largely male-dominated at national level.
