Harry to represent Great Britain in 420 Sailing world Championships

Harry will soon be competing at San Remo Yacht Club against 120 other teams from 10 different countries


“My name is Harry, and I am in year 8 at Highcliffe school. I have been selected to represent Great Britain in the 420 Sailing World Championships held at the San Remo yacht club in Italy. I will be competing against 120 different competitors from 10 countries. 

The 420 is a two-man boat with a helm and a crew. The helm steers the boat, and the crew stands on the side hooked on to a trapeze. As a team the aim is to place as high in a race as possible. To be selected for the worlds I had to take part in 3 qualifying events and sail the best of my ability to finish in the top 3 in my category. Every boat taking part has also had to qualify making these the best 60, under 17 boats in the world. I believe this is a great opportunity to take part in a high-level competition and I think it will be an amazing experience to be a part of.”


Good Luck Harry!
