Brilliant time for our pirates at the NSSA Team Racing.

October 29, 2018

So very proud of the 3 Pirate Teams competing at the NSSA Topper Team Racing event this weekend (31 Teams, 93 competitors and 162 races held!!!), for a number of reasons.....


Firstly, there’s the results:

 Oxford A (Ben, Sophie, Barney) - 4th Overall and 1st U16 Trophy Winners
 Oxford B (Arlo, Emma, Felix) - 12th Overall
 Oxford C (Arthur, James, Malachy) - 22nd Overall 

 Absolutely brilliant!!! 



Secondly, I saw all 3 Teams not just develop, but continued to strive to develop in their skills and tactics, with a huge amount of progress made in a very short period of time both in the run-up to the event and over the weekend itself.


Thirdly, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, I saw a group of young sailors enjoying their sport, renewing and making friendships with sailors from all over the country and showing true sportsmanship. I saw our sailors shaking hands with opponents after each race, saw them helping other teams launch and recover boats, and saw them taking responsibility for our kit, working as a team to prepare, maintain and pack away equipment without any supervision required.


I hope you’re all as proud of yourselves as I am of you. You’re an absolute credit to this Sailing Club 😎👍🏽
