Following his recent success in the Class Selectors, Joe Butterworth has sailed his way into second place at the World Selectors after battling off competition in 24 races over 3 events. This selection means that he will join the GBR International 420 Class Dinghy World Team in Valencia in August for the World Championships.

In addition to this exciting achievement Joe has also been selected for the GBR A team who will be competing in Pwhelli, North Wales, as part of the GBR International 420 Class Dinghy Junior European Team.

To further his sailing career, he is also hoping to sail in the Kiel International Regatta after finishing his exams this term and the UK Nationals in August. This will mark the close of his 420 dinghy sailing as he hopes to be moving on to 470 in the autumn when he will combine university with a place on the Olympic Development squad.
