Two of Oakham School's talented sailors took top places at the RYA North & West Zone Championships held at Blithfield sailing club at the end of September. Daisy Streatfeild and Issy Gibbs were delighted to win the top positions in the girls RS Feva class.

Overall, students from Oakham School had a great competition, with four boats winning places in the top 10, out of 26 boats competing in total. In fact, sailors from Rutland did outstandingly well, with nine of the top 10 boats having previously trained at Rutland Water in the regional squad managed by Oakham School coach Nick Neve.

These zone championships are run by the RYA as a selection event for winter squad training. These junior squads lead up the ladder towards the pinnacle of Olympic selection. As a result of their performance in the championships, all of the Oakham boats have been invited to train with the regional squad this winter.
