An end to an exciting season of 4.2

By Rooster Sailing 30th September 2020

Hi I'm Simon Page, I am a light 13 year old from Swanage Sailing Club and this is my first blog since I recently joined Team Rooster. I will be keeping you up to date on my results and training with the 4.2 National Squad over the next year. I ended my first year on the Topper 4.2 National circuit well with fourth at Poole where I had a great first day ending up in third place with a win and only four points off the leader after 6 races. On the second day all of the wind from Saturday had gone, I couldn't repeat my performance from the first day due to the horribly light winds and was beaten by Ollie Dixon to third place. Then a few weekends on from that was the first of four 4.2 Squad training weekends in a muddy Carsington. On the first day we set off in light winds and did a mark rounding exercise, Dave's coaching really helped me on my sailing when all the wind decides not to arrive. After lunch we set off with a nice breeze out there, where we did a series of small races including a fun standing-up race which was swiftly abandoned half way up the beat because the wind suddenly died. On the second day we never left the shore due to a blanket of fog and no wind. The day was built up of highly educating theory and fun and interesting games. Thanks to Dave, Tracy and Andy for a great weekend which I am sure was enjoyed by all.
