NE Traveller Success for Teesdale Sailors

The North East Traveller’s Series reached it’s conclusion at Derwent Reservoir on Saturday where Teesdale Sailing Club was represented by three sailors from Durham School.

The racing was competitive with 24 youngsters from across the region taking part.

The Teesdale sailors finished in the middle of the fleet, but did enough for James Hewitt to secure second position in the series overall.

In all Teesdale had four sailors in the top eleven places out of eighty nine youngsters who had taken part in the series.

This is a great achievement for the smallest club in the region,  and a testament to the development of youth sailing that is taking place at the club.
