Littleton Sailing Club’s youth squad competed in this year’s RYA Regional British Youth Sailing (BYS) Regional Junior Championships at Queen Mary SC, with an excellent 5th place for Lucia Evans and Isabelle Lemmon in the very competitive RS Feva Championship Class.

There were also 1st places for Khenza and Tazkiya Yazid, Lottie Phillips and Chloe Barwick in the Regatta Classes for Feva, Tera Sport and Topper respectively.

Littleton’s Youth sailors have benefitted from use of the RYA London and South East Youth Training Fund (LSEYTF) fleet of RS Teras for training young sailors from RYA Stage 2 all the way through to race coaching, competing annually at RYA Regional Championships, and in 2021 the National Schools Sailing Association championships at Plymouth.

Andrew Selves, RYA Principal at the Littleton, says: “Alongside fantastic individual results at the 2021 Regional Championships and prizes for endeavour, the Littleton SC team won the 2021 RYA BYS Regional Junior Championships Club Development Trophy. “Well done Team Littleton!”

Dave Ellis from the LSEYTF adds: “The trailer of six RS Teras with child size buoyancy aids and two trolleys is available to rent through the Youth Trust. It’s wonderful to see Littleton’s youth squad use the boats so successfully.”

Littleton Sailing Club is a volunteer run family orientated club near Chertsey, East Surrey. It is part of the Civil Service Sailing Association of dinghy and yacht sailing centres, but welcomes all to membership for dinghy sailing, sailboarding, paddleboarding and RYA training.
