Junior Regatta – 29 June 2013
Sponsored by Balmoral Estates
County Antrim Yacht Club held the Junior Regatta on Saturday 29 June 2013. A total of 9 competitors took part in 3 races compared to 24 last year. This was due to an unfortunate clash of other events and holidays
The Club is a RYA Training Centre and a RYA Champion Club. The Junior Regatta followed on from recent race training that many of the juniors took part in over 8 Saturday mornings in the spring and 8 Friday evenings for Optimist sailors.
Three of the Club juniors are in the RYANI Junior Squad Emily Hill, Ellen McCarlie and Andrew Mitchell and Jocelyn Hill is in the Youth Squad. This aims to develop young sailors and facilitate those who wish to go into the GBR or IRL National Junior/Youth Squad Programmes.
Sponsored by Balmoral Estates, Stephen McAloney presented the prizes to all the junior and youth sailors who took part.
