On Saturday, 13th May 14 young sailors (7 home competitors and 7 travellers from Burghfield, Papercourt and Goring on Thames) competed in the Maidenhead SC Topper and Optimist Open.  


The sailors were blessed with good weather, mild, some sun in the afternoon, a bit of a variable wind from the south and south-west with a few gusts at times.  The children coped admirably (even with a few capsizes).  Well done to all!


Thank you very much to the race crew who ran three excellent races.  A bit thank you to everyone else who contributed - coaches on the water, safety boat helms and crews, media team, pontoon team, those in the kitchen preparing and serving good and everyone else who got stuck in and volunteered, helping the event to run so smoothly and successfully.
