Eloise and her sailing partner had a fabulous world championships in Holland at the end of July. It was very close racing against 177 boats from around the world in very tough conditions. Eloise and her partner finished 16th overall and were the 1st all girl boat – gaining the title “2017 RS Feva Ladies World Champions” and a lovely big trophy!
In June Eloise and her sailing partner competed in the RS Feva Inland National Championships at Draycote Water, finishing 1st Ladies and 3rd overall.
Their next competition is the RS Feva World Championships in Holland at the end of July, where Eloise and her fellow UK Junior Squad boats will be representing GBR in a competition of 200 boats from around the world. We wish her good luck!
Congratulations to Eloise and her sailing partner (from another school), who have, as one of 9 boats, been selected for the RYA UK Junior Squad – Feva. This is the National U14 squad, which is an Olympic pathway squad. It is the highest level that sailor’s of Eloise’s age can reach and is a fantastic achievement. This is going to be an amazing opportunity for the two girls to develop their skills and to sail as part of the UK Junior Squad at the next RS Feva World Championships in July 2017 in Holland. Eloise has just finished her first coaching session as a member of the UK Junior Squad in Weymouth, this weekend. We would all like to wish her luck and look forward to hearing how she gets on. Good luck Eloise.
Congratulations to Eloise (year 9) for her success in her sailing. During the summer Eloise and her sailing partner took part in the RS Feva world championships in Santander, Spain. 165 boats competed with sailors of all ages. There were 3 fleets of 55 boats (gold, silver and bronze). Eloise qualified for the silver fleet and they came 3rd. This overall result means that Eloise and her partner (aged 13 and under) are the 5th junior RS Feva sailors in the world. For her success Eloise won a bronze mental and a trophy.
Congratulations to Eloise (year 8) on her success in sailing. In April she entered her first National event (with her sailing partner) at Rutland Water in Oakham, Leicestershire. They competed in 5 races over 2 days, against 52 other boats, with sailors up to 16 years old (Eloise is 12 and her partner 13), from all over the UK. Despite them being one of the youngest teams and less experienced at National events they finished 1st all-girl boat and 14th overall.
Well done Eloise. An Olympic sailor in the making? We hope so. Good luck in future events.
