The juniors invitational regatta was a great success with 29 boats competing from five different sailing clubs.

Sailors came from Bartley Green SC, Olton Mere SC, Barnt Green SC and Shustoke SC and of course Midland SC. We've had lots of positive feedback from representatives of the participating clubs.

The event went smoothly thanks to the great work of the volunteers.  The galley team fed breakfast and lunch to over 60 people without a hitch.  And the race team set good courses for 3 races in a fair wind of 12-18 knots.  The safety crews provided assistance with quite a few capsizes in the gusts and a bit of support to the novices.   The whole thing was a credit to the club.  Thank you to all those who came and helped - it made the event both a success and a pleasure.

Our junior sailors put in great performances in both Gold and Silver fleets.  Highlights were Will C coming 2nd in the Silver (regatta) fleet and Oliver M winning the Gold fleet.  We will put the full results up in the bar this week - many of our sailors raised their game for day and it was great to see.
