Congratulations to James Boyce, who came first in the Solo European Championships (the Nations Cup) held at Carnac, France this month. James started in Oppies at Papercourt, moved on to bigger ¬†boats, went out racing on regional and then national circuits, he became an instructor and now he is a European Champion. Well done. His proud father came 34th.
Congratulations to Papercourt Optimist sailor Finian Morris, who has been selected to represent Great Britain at the Optimist World Championships in Antigua this summer.
Last month 21 Papercourt youth sailors took part in the RYA British Youth Sailing London and South-East Regional Championships. The event attracted over 130 entries in Oppies, Toppers, Fevas and Teras, and for many was an indicator for zone squads.
Papercourt sailors took five of the top ten places in the Oppie fleet; won overall in the Topper fleet; and were placed second overall in the Feva fleet.
And to top it all, Papercourt was awarded the Development Trophy for the club with the most increased number of entrants.
