On weekend of the 10th June Will in Year 4, travelled to Cardiff Bay Yacht Club to compete in the Welsh Optimist Championship. Optimists are small single handed dinghies. Competitors were aged 8 to 15 years and came from clubs around England and Wales. He competed over two days completing eight races in some windy conditions.

At the end of the weekend Will was pleased to be ranked first 8 year old in the Championship. A proud Will says, “The mud on my mast proves that I worked hard and capsized a few times but I had fun! I hope to go back next year. ”

Well done on a great achievement Will.
