Term 1 Academy Prize Giving celebrates up and coming sailors

The Term 1 Academy Prize Giving brought sailors and families together on Friday 17th May to celebrate the success of the next generation of sailors.

Over 50 sailors were at the club to collect their prizes and to hear about how sailing can take you into the future by listening to stories from Alison Kent (Maiden crew member), Tim Snedden, Zak Merton and Sam Barnett (KNOTS Racing) who are all in their early 20’s taking on the sailing world.
