Durham School Sailing Team Clean Sweep!

A very happy Richard Hewitt reports:

The RN cadets made a clean sweep of the trophies at the Northern
Regatta at Southport.  William Hewitt and Ed Carr won the Bosun
Trophy, Adam Morris won the Topper event and James Hewitt won eight
out of nine races to claim the Pico Trophy.

When all the results were combined Durham retained the North East
Trophy for the third year in a row and the Northern Trophy for the
second successive year. The Regatta concludes with a relay race
around the island involving all the boats and our cadets won that
too.

The only trophy that we did not win was the North West trophy for
which were are not eligible.

Seven schools took part, including two from Scotland.  Traditional
rivals Sedbergh and Sandbach were well beaten.

Well done lads (no lasses!)
