by Unknown - 11:48 on 27 December 2014
The dinghy section has done extremely well this year and goes from strength to strength.
Several of the optimist sailers have taken part in the IOCA Traveller series. At the end of the season the results for the Nairn sailors were
Adam Watkins - 9th after 3 travellers
Amy Cook - 12th after 1 traveller
Lachy Hogg - 13th after 2 travellers
Jasmin Robertson - 19th after 1 traveller
Amy Cook has now moved up to the main fleet.
In the main fleet Calum Cook came 15th out of 21 racers after completing 2 travellers. He has been very busy sailing around the country and overseas, working hard to retain his GB squad place.
At the start of the summer several sailors attending the Findhorn week. Calum came along as coach and his mum Christine also provided coaching and Rib support for all.
Adam won the ENDEAVOR trophy which has been won by a Nairn sailor 4 times in the past 5 years. Well done!
Overall Amy came 1st, Jasmin 2nd, Lachy 3rd and Adam 4th overall.
The weather was hot and very windy at times and everyone enjoyed themselves with games inthe am and racing in the pm.
Two training weeks were held during Easter and the summer with the programme being delivered by James Logan. These programmes not only benefited the juniors but showcased the club and showed people of Nairn what was being achieved. Several new children started sailing as a result wih a couple attending regularly until the end of the season..
Many thanks to all the people who give up a lot of time to help make the dinghy section the success that it is.
