Derbyshire Youth Sailing Series at Errwood Sailing Club

by D. Jones on 11 Jun 2003

31st May 2003

23 boats competed in the under 18’s Derbyshire Youth Sailing Series event at Errwood Sailing Club near Buxton on Saturday 31st May. Youth sailors (and parents) travelled from all over Derbyshire for this, the fourth DYS series event of the year. The warm and sunny weather provided perfect conditions with an initially gentle southerly filling in nicely to provide slightly more challenging conditions. Classes sailed included Laser, Topper, Optimist, Lightning, and Bosun. All three races were sailed under handicap with four laps sailed per race. The sailing was competitive but friendly and the level of skill displayed was extremely impressive given the age of some of the sailors.

The top three winners were awarded a prize, along with certificates and boat stickers. Derbyshire Youth Sailing never likes to have participants going away empty handed and all competitors were awarded a certificate.

Thanks go to the race officials at Errwood who did a splendid job as well as other club members who helped make the event so enjoyable for all.
