Well done katie

Posted on

Well we have nearly reached the end of the year, we have just had our annual dinner and awards evening. Well done to everyone who won a prize  but especially to Katie our youngest winner of the year, she has sailed at every opportunity at the club this year and it shows in her huge improvement, not only was she the top Rookie but she has even been giving the more experienced sailors a run for their money even beating some of them.

Amongst her trophies (4 in total)was the Endeavour trophy which reflects her committment.

Only 1 Trophy left to win this year The Frostbite, it is still anyone’s to win so come and join in.

Can Katie make it 5 trophies.

Find out at the last race along with carols and mince pies on December 10th

Topper Star

Posted on Updated on

Gresford Sailing Club has produced many top sailors over the years our latest is Elin who has progressed through the juniors, sailed with the seniors and is now off to the Topper World Championships in China 2018.

The Club’s long investment in developing GSC juniors is paying off for Elin.

Over the last 3 weeks Elin has been selected for:-

  • Welsh National Topper Squad (5th Girl and 13th overall at Welsh Zone Championships)
  • RYA Great Britain (GBR) Intermediate Topper Squad (24th Girl and 84th Overall, with a 12th place finish in one race, at  Poole Selector National Series 1 Regatta)
  • An ITCA travel grant to take part it the Topper World Championships in Shenzen China next August. This is one of only 100 ITCA grants issued for this event.

This would not have been possible without the foundations laid in GSC Junior Sailing and wider encouragement Elin has had from across GSC. Thank you all.

Part of the squad training will be developing Elin’s coaching skills. This she will be looking to feed back into GSC Junior Sailing over the coming years.

Harry has done so much for the club over the years and earned the respect of many,he has trained our juniors many of whom have become competent adult sailors,he has been a commodore and a treasurer.

Harry you  will be missed by so many,it has been a pleasure to have known you.
