2014 RYA NE Championships

25-26 October 2014 RYA NE Championships at South Shields

There were challenging conditions facing the participants of the RYA North-East Championships at South Shields Sailing Club last weekend.

With winds gusting in excess of 30 mph on both days, only 3 of the planned 5 races could be completed.

Teesdale Sailing Club member, Adam Morris, borrowed a smaller sail and managed a very impressive 6th place in a strong line up from other clubs in the region.

Adam was sailing in the under 19′s fleet, even though he is just 14 – just 6 months too old to sail in the under 14′s. He was sailing a Laser 4.7 number 158265 and you can see him in the picture above.
