Marconi Youth Team Impress in British Keelboat League


Marconi’s Keelboat Champions, David and Daniel Nickalls and Jack’s Collis and Wardell turned in a great performance last weekend at the BKL leg at the Royal Southern YC on the Hamble.

Competing against 11 other teams in a fleet of 6 x RS21’s, Marconi finished in 5th place with 47 points. The event was won by the team from the home club, with Bristol Uni in 2nd and the two teams from Graffham Water just ahead of our own.

Marconi sailed 12 x 15 minute races winning 3 of them and twice being in 2nd and 3rd place. Two of these wins came in Marconi’s last two races, indicating the progression they had made throughout the day, and in both cases beat all those teams above them in the overall standings.

Well done guys, you did us proud and we look forward to reading your full report.
