RYA Scottish Club Trophy – Young sailors gather at Loch Lomond SC

RYA Scottish Club Trophy 2015 – As many as 130 young sailors from 23 different clubs all over Scotland gathered at Loch Lomond Sailing Club on Saturday 22 August. The event was aimed at youngsters who hadn’t done much racing before to give them a taste of what racing in a big fleet away from your home club is like.

“It is great to see so many youngsters getting on the water at one event and it is exactly what we wanted from this event. It is great opportunity for youngsters to learn a bit more about racing, travel to a venue different from their home club to race, make lots of new friends and most importantly – have a fantastic time on the water.

“We had so many more entries than we were expecting which is great and to see all the smiling faces coming ashore at lunchtime and at the end of the day makes all the hard work worthwhile. A few have already said to me that they have loved it and definitely want to do more so that in itself is a huge success for us” commented Liza Linton, RYA Scotland Development Manager.

GB Sailing Team’s Lorenzo Chiavarini was there on the day after just arriving home from Rio to offer some wise words of advice to the youngsters and also to tell them a bit about the opportunities that are out there for those wanting to take their sailing to the next level.

“It has been great to be at this event and to see all the children on the water; this is what it is all about. I would very much like to come along to the event again in the future if I can” said Lorenzo after being grilled at a Q and A session.

In the end it was Loch Venachar Sailing Club who won the Scottish Club Trophy with some fantastic results across Oppie, Topper and Feva fleets. It is also rather fitting as it is the first time the club have won the trophy since they donated it as the Windward Mark Trophy back in 2008 so we are sure it will be taking pride of place in their club house.
