We’ve just received this blog from James Russ, the youth sailor that we’ve been proudly supporting over the last year. James started the season sailing a Topper, finishing 16th in the Topper Worlds in the summer. He’s now progressed into the fiercely competitive world of Laser sailing and gives us a little, albeit very modest, insight into his amazing achievements……

“I am very grateful that Aqua are happy to continue to support my sailing.

I had an amazing time in Lake Garda for the Topper Worlds where I finished 16th, followed swiftly by the National Championships where I finished 24th.

I quickly moved into my laser after the Nationals racing at club level and a few local open meetings in September.

I attended 3 laser qualifiers in September and October which were at Sunderland, Paignton and Hayling Island.

On the laser ladder I finished 74th out of 162.

I now have 5 weekends of laser coaching at Hayling which I am really looking forward to, that is followed be 3 qualifiers in March at WPNSA, Plymouth and Stokes Bay.

In the Easter holidays I will be racing in the RYA Youth Nationals at Pwhelli.”

A new radial sail for James’ Laser is on order and we can’t wait to hear how he gets on in 2016! Go Team Russ!
