Bartley Juniors Selected for the RYA Youth Sailing Zone Squads
Congratulations to Theo and Millie for being selected for the RYA Midland Zone Squads in the Optimist and Topper squad respectively. This will be the second year Theo has been in the Optimist squad and a first for Millie.
The selection process takes the top 6 boys and top 6 girls from the qualifying events (an Open meeting, the Junior Regional Championships, and a training event) and provides them with 6 weekends of winter training from RYA coaches to develop them to a level where they can compete for a place in the national squad.
This is a great achievement and we wish them well with their training and progression to greater things.
Quiz - There are a number of Bartley Sailors who have been through the RYA Youth Squads, can you name any and what they are doing now? - Post a comment if you think you know who they might be.
