Silver Medal for Sophie.....

Saturday, 28 July 2007

Congratulations to Sophie Weguelin and her crew Sophie Ainsworth for winning a Silver Medal in the 29er class at the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championships which drew to a close in Kingston, Canada, on Saturday 21 July 2007.  

With gold already won by the USA crew and with the Australian crew snapping at their heels, the British girls had to deliver a good result in their final race to stay in the silver medal position, and showed their strength of character to win the nail-biting final race.

Sophie Weguelin was awarded a grant by the John Merricks Sailing Trust in 2004 when she was sailing in a 420. Sophie has represented Britain at the Optimist Worlds, 420 Worlds and previously competed at the ISAF Youth World Championships in the 420 class.

We wish her every success in her future sailing career.
