Bon Voyage to Academy Student

After winning the final qualifier for the World Team at Stone Sailing Club recently, Academy student Alex Page is off with the GB sailing squad to in the Cadet Class sailing competition in Nieuwpoort, Belgium.
This competition is the perfect preparation for the World Championships during the summer holidays.  
Alex sails in the Cadet Class in his boat called 'Gnat’, and the feeling amongst Alex's supporting team is that anything is now possible. Having won the qualifiers Alex is confident that he cannot be beaten 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 and 'Bon Voyage'
