Para team Jurmin Jones and Ronald Greenaway made history this weekend competing for the first time in the RS Venture class and winning it! They have been training together for only a few weeks, having both starting their solo sailing experiences in Hansa 303’s late last year. Of their success, Senior Instructor and coach Joshua Daniels said, “After putting in extra hours on the water for race training this past week its nice to see them out on top. I am super proud of them.’ The duo were delighted to be awarded the coveted Locman watch from the Mare range for their win.
Of the experience Greenaway said, ‘It’s an interesting challenge given both of us have limited mobility but we work as a team and play to each-others strengths. I look forward to training more and seeing how we can improve.’ Jurmin's signature wide smile stayed with him until the end of the day.
A great day of racing was enjoyed by 30 sailors across three classes: RS Ventures, RS Fevas and RS Zests & Terras on Sunday. Winner in the RS Zest Class was Malik Charles, who has dominated in the class since the start of the fun regattas, and the RS Feva class was won by due Deshante Durand and Jahvorn Hector who have sailed together for a number of years.
The regatta was followed by a dock party with sounds from DJ Purist, Christen on the grill and Dee on the bar. The sounds of the afternoon included intermittent ‘clapping of tile’ as the instructors and sailors wound down after a competitive day of sailing in feisty conditions.
The next Regatta will take place on Sunday 28th August, the Back to School Regatta is open to all classes. To register whats app: 780-1345 or email email@example.com
