Cadet Team Racing Squad success

Published by under Bilge

Our Cadet Team Racing Squad sailed very well against Eton College on Saturday 8th September at Bray Lake, winning 4-3. The impressive performance by both teams in 6 Fireflies, involved seven races around a S shaped course, each lasting 10 minutes. This generated close maneuvers, which required good sailing and communication skills and very quick thinking! Amongst the many highlights was an amazing Mark Trap when one of our boats held back two of their boats, allow us to sail through. Well done TBYC Team, we are proud of you!
