Junior leads the way


One of the most hotly contested races last Sunday was the Junior Race. In their J250 class monohull boats 9 - 16 year olds can race at speeds up to 35 Miles per Hour around the same course as the bigger boats. This year a number of the new junior racers are girls and here Charlotte Gilbert rounds the end marker buoy and races towards the finish line.
