Finn Morris, our DHF-supported junior sailor, has given us an update on his latest events:

Hello, it has been a while since I last wrote, I came back from the World Championships in Antigua and I have been to 3 events and had 3 great results. First it was the British nationals in Weymouth, it was a tough event which I enjoyed a lot. I finished 6th British boat and second 13 year old. There were over 350 sailors from 17 countries competing in this 6 day event.

Next we travelled to the Irish nationals in Howth, County Dublin. It was an amazing week with incredibly windy and testing conditions on the final 2 days. I was very proud of how I did, finishing 9th overall in an incredibly competitive fleet with 11 countries represented and 2 sailors who’d finished in the top 10 at the worlds and 10 others that had competed in this years Worlds or Europeans.
Finally I travelled to the late Summer championship at Draycote Water sailing club, near Rugby in Warwickshire. This was the first of 2 events which make up the national rankings, so everyone is keen to do well. The conditions were testing and shifty due to the lake being small. However I did very well and finished 2nd overall and 1st 13yr old. I am now looking forward to the next ranking event in October where I hope to secure my place in the National squad.  Before that happens I’m lucky enough to be travelling to the Belgian Nationals, a weekend event with many international sailors competing. I will let you know how I get on in my next blog.
Thanks to all at the Dylan Howells Foundation for continuing to support me. It really has made an enormous difference to how much I’ve been able to train, compete and enjoy my sailing this year.
