Burton SC's Youth Academy Goes Team Racing

Written by
On Saturday 15th March Burton SC's Youth Academy joined other sailors from DYS at a Team Racing Event at Farmoor Reservoir near Oxford.  It was the Academy's first foray into competitive team racing and unfamiliar boats and difficult weather conditions added to the challenges they had to overcome.  A great time was had by all, and our juniors are keen to build on this great experience to make competitive racing a regular event.
