Duncan Truswell, RYA Youth Racing Manager said that Lulu “has been selected on the basis of her performance and commitment to a programme of training and competition over several years and establishes her status as a UK Squad sailor who we hope will represent Great Britain at major international events in the forthcoming years.”

This announcement follows the news that another RHS sailor, Freddie Chiddicks, Year 13, travels to Oman this Christmas to represent Great Britain in the Laser Radial Youth World Championships. Freddie has also been awarded a place on the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) supporting young athletes in the development stages of their sporting careers as they combine outstanding results in their sport with continuing education.

Well done to both of these RHS elite sailors.
