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.
Please see a copy of the email I received from Elins dad.
Our best wishes and congratulations go to Elin let’s hope you have a great time and do well.
Your 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.
