The Senior Sailing Team competed in the BSDRA East Kent Spring Team Racing Championship at Westbere Lake on 26 April, along with eleven other school teams including those from Ardingly, Eton, Sevenoaks, Haileybury, Kings Canterbury, Wellington College and Winchester.
Despite some strong gusts in the morning, rain eased by midday with the southerly breeze settling to a steady 13/14 mph. 25 races proceeded in two mini-leagues followed by 14 sail-off races for final positions. The Royal Hospital School and Sevenoaks dominated their respective leagues and were outstanding in a superb, closely fought final. Unfortunately, the RHS Team ultimately finished in second place behind this year’s champions, Sevenoaks.
Results: First: Sevenoaks; Second: Royal Hospital School; Third: Eton; Fourth: Ardingly
