AMELIE Hiscocks claimed first prize at Castle Cove Sailing Club’s (CCSC) Cadet Regatta.

Conditions were breezy and this probably put off some cadets.

But the competitors enjoyed three fine races with Hiscocks triumphing.

Second went to Bruno Greenfield, while Louis Hiscocks was third.

This regatta was swiftly followed by the National Schools National Sailing Competition where four CSSC cadets joined with the Andrew Simpson team.

Amelie Hiscocks finished seventh in the slow handicap fleet of 38 boats in her Optimist.

Abi Richards came in 34th in her Topper in the 5.3 fleet, while Nicola Richards and Louis Hiscocks finished first and second respectively in the Rookie Handicap fleet in their Optimists.

The Optimist Nationals were next at Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy.

It was a week of very mixed conditions, with one day being lost to high winds for the main fleet and two days lost for regatta racing.

There were six CCSC Cadets taking part across the Senior Silver, Junior Gold, Junior Silver, and the Regatta Racing fleets.

There were very good results from all but special congratulations to Archie Munro-Price, who finished eighth in the Junior Gold fleet of 65 boats, and Nicola Richards who was first girl to finish in the Regatta Racing fleet comprising 55 competitors.

Meanwhile, four sailors from CCSC made the journey north to Largs for the 2019 Topper Nationals.

This large event had 234 boats entered.

In the main 5.3 fleet of 182 sailors, Ben Adler finished 43rd and Alex Assirati 54th, both in the 5.3 Gold Fleet.

In the 4.2 fleet, Isabelle Assirati was 18th and her sister Camilla 29th.
