Harrison Allen and Millie Hardiman both represented Bartley K2O in their first 'main fleet' experience at the RYA Zone Championships at Rutland (Toppers) and Leigh and Lowton (Teras). Both sailors had to battle hard in large fleets and learned what it was like to start in a big fleet on an Olympic-style course. The level of competition was high as the event was a squad selector for the RYA youth squads giving both our junior sailors a taste of what it takes to compete at national level. Both took away some key learning and experience to consolidate over the winter season and are already champing at the bit to get their race tactics tuned at the Bartley Saturday morning race ready for the 2018 Open circuit!
Well done to both sailors!
