A massive congratulations to all those Y&J's who took part in the Topper London and South East Zone championships at Datchet SC last weekend. The results were very impressive and you guys represented the club brilliantly. Considering that we all sail in a fairly shallow small lake each of you made the transition to a large deeper expanse of water brilliantly. The event drew some of the best sailors from all over the Southern and Eastern counties, a huge catchment. To have 3 boats in the top 10 is a brilliant result, no other club had 3 boats in the top 10 and really puts the achievements into perspective. 
Topper Main Fleet - 36 entries
2nd Leo Wilkinson
6th Ben Osborne
10th  Tom Knight
27th Georgia McAdam
32nd Joseph Tubb
Topper Regatta Fleet - 15 entries (both 5.3 and 4.2 sails combined)
2nd  Adam Wilkinson (Topper 4.2)
6th  Sam Edwards 
11th  Kate McAdam (Topper 4.2)
Optimist Regatta Fleet - 15 entries
9th  Geriant Head
It makes us all very proud to see these results, well done. 

Everyone is welcome to our annual night sail which raced on 21st September. Scheduled for a 7pm (or when it's dark) start it is a chance for you to challenge yourself against the darkness and every other 'mad' Maidenhead SC member who chances their luck in the darker hours.
