Success for HISC Windsurfers

Success for HISC Windsurfers at British Youth Sailing Regional Junior Championships

HISC juniors Sophie Blaydes and Guy Gibson went to the BYS S & SW regionals at Weymouth and came back with first and second places in the 4.5m2 Techno class. Between them they won all six races in the fleet of fourteen boards.

Sophie had her first windsurfing lesson at HISC just over two years ago, and has progressed to blasting up and down the trots on windy summer days. Having discovered that much of what she has learnt from 4 years in the HISC Tera pathway works just as well in windsurfers, she plans to compete in both Tera Pro and Techno 293 next year.

This is an area that HISC is not currently very involved in as a club, but in 2019 the youth section of HISC will be looking to start a windsurfing club, in which we hope to cater for kids that want to bomb up and down and also those who might be interested in getting their boards round a course too.
