THIS year saw the perfect conditions for youngsters to take part in the Cardigan Bay Watersports sixth annual Junior Regatta.
More than15 youngsters (under 16 years) participated in the triangular course, with challenging gusts to test their skills.
Four races were held to make the regatta series, two in the morning and two after lunch. In first place with three wins was Duncan Lloyd Evans, followed by Rhys Jones and David Lim, in second and third place respectively. The centre also gave awards for most improved sailor to Lewis Grey, and most spectacular capsize to Megan Dugdale.
Lewis Gray, aged 10, spends each holiday in New Quay. She said: “I really enjoyed taking part in the regatta, and was really proud to be awarded most improved sailor. I have been coming to Cardigan Bay Watersports Centre for two years now, and my sailing skills have really improved, and I’ve made lots of friends in the process. I would encourage anyone who has an interest, whatever their ability, to come along and give it a go it’s great fun.”
Crawford Mcleary, Cardigan Bay Watersports Centre Manager said: “We are really proud of all our young people who took part in the Junior Regatta. For some it was a day of serious competition and for others a chance to have some fun and implement new skills they’d learnt throughout the year.”
Entries for the 2014 Junior Regatta will open in the spring next year. For more information about how under 16s can get involved with watersport activities, call 01545 561257 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
