Alex Page, Year 9, won the final qualifier for World Team at Stone Sailing Club recently and was first pick for the national team.
Alex sails in the Cadet Class in his boat, ‘Gnat’ and feels that anything is now possible. There is no one from the UK he cannot beat on his day and it will come down to how he sails in the World Championship itself.
There's loads of revision and last minute preparation to do. Most of the hard work was done over winter in the fitness suite and on the road cycling, when the weather warmed up a bit.
Congratulations Alex—and good luck in the World Championships!
