At the start of September Marconi members Mia, Tiegan, Hannah, Niamh and Daisy took on the women’s leg of the 2023 British Keelboat League in Southampton. (Team M in the photo’s) Here’s their report: (Ed)
After our success at East Coast Piers the self named Slaydeez we’re super excited to take on the British Keelboat League.
It was an honour for all of us to be part of this important event, championing women in sailing and highlighting how keelboats and these sorts of events can make sailing more accessible. If anyone would like to give keelboat sailing a go at the club just email email@example.com. Something we all value in keelboat sailing is the opportunity to learn from each other and spend the day out on the water with friends.
We’d like to thank Royal Southern for hosting, all the support from the club, especially Peter Ward and everyone who helps keep the keelboats sailing at Marconi. And a special mention to M&S for not putting holes in their bags for life and protecting Mia’s Dad’s car from several team members’ travel sickness.
Thanks for the report Mia (Ed). Sounds like you all had a great time and finishing in 5th place! Well done, you did Marconi proud.
