HD Sails Going To Optimist Worlds

Congratulations to Martin Wrigley for making the Optimist Worlds Team.

WPNSA played host to the Optimist Selection Trials, one of the most important Optimist events of the year which was held over the bank holiday weekend.

The top 86 Optimist sailors in the country, completed a 15 race series over 4 days in Portland Harbour and in Weymouth Bay, for the honour of representing GBR in this year’s World and European’s and Development teams, the Flanders team and training in Greece. Only the top 5 GBR sailors are able to qualify to compete in the worlds, and 7 including the top 3 girls in the Europeans.

Martin finished 3rd overall and showed excellent pace in all conditions throughout the weekend, Martin will be flying out to the Dominican Republic in July.

Congratulations also go to Josh Haynes who finished 16th and made the development squad.
