Congratulations must go to two of our youngsters representing Burton Sailing Club at the Eric Twiname National Junior Championships, held this year at Rutland Sailing Club. Nieve Ball won 'first girl' in the 6.8M windsurfing class, whilst Alice Bennion did superbly to finish 4th girl in the 5.8m windsurfing class. Both girls competed fiercely and are a credit to our club. Well done to you both! With dedication and hard work, it really goes to show what can be achieved
