King’s Pupils Sail for Great Britain

Ellie Driver of the Fifth Form (Year 11) and Rachael Cross of the Lower Sixth Form travelled to Athens this summer to represent Great Britain in the 420 Class Open European Sailing Championships. They were competing with the best under seventeen sailors from around Europe, together with guest teams from the USA, Singapore and Australia.

In varied wind conditions and intense heat they recorded some good results; including an eighth place on the last day. They finished fourth out of the six GBR boats and thirty-fifth out of the forty-six boats that took place in the whole competition. This was great experience for both girls to take with them to Fremantle, Australia, where they will compete in the World Championships over Christmas.
