Congratulations to everyone who took part in the RYA Youth Nationals last week, very trying and challenging conditions, especially the first three days where patience, risk assessment and very gentle boat handling were key in very light and shifty airs.

Overall winners were Dan Venables and Patrick Keech who sailed superbly across the whole week

Results from Harken GP2 at Rutland SC are now online here:
