Junior Regatta   Nine Slaughden Juniors took part in the AYC junior Regatta, some having never raced before and one crew having never sailed before! They all enjoyed the week enormously, sailing the AM & PM races and they were all a credit to Slaughden.
Finnian & Oli, Cesca & Faye and Skye & Mallow all raced Fevas.
Rory Dowdeswell gained a 1st in his Topaz with Aonghus in the am series and a 2nd with Hamish in the pm races.
Very well done to them all. We are lucky to have so many very enthusiastic juniors and super parents to support them
