Marconi Cadets cause a stir at Dart 16 Nationals


Congratulations to David Nickalls and Sophie Savill who competed in last weekends Dart 16 National Championships at Thames Estuary Yacht Club.

On Saturday they scored three wins from three races leaving them well and truly in top spot going into Sunday.

There were only 2 races completed in the light winds on Sunday, an initial first let them take a more relaxed approach for their final (discard) race, which Sophie helmed to a third place. Although they counted only firsts across the whole fleet in their results, they were told they weren’t eligible for the main trophy due to their age (Junior results were not simply extracted from the overall results). So they came away with the Dart 16 Junior National Championship title.

Here’s to next year! Congratulations!
