Ben Batchelor & Maddie Wylie spent a week over the Easter holidays at the 2018 RYA Youth Championships. The competition is open to Lasers, Nacra’s, 420’s and 29er’s. The event saw the whole range of weather from light air’s to very breezy, testing competitors in all conditions. After some middle range results at the beginning of the week, Ben & Maddie posted some good finishes of a 3rd, 10th, 17th & 9th, placing them 14th overall out of a 38 strong fleet. Well done!
