Milly Jinxs & Jaz Boote make British Keelboat Academy
In the second weekend of November, down on the Solent, British Keelboat Academy trials were held. This consisted of a day at North Sails, learning about hardware, ropes and rigging and sailmaking. Followed by a dinner with guest speaker, Emily Nagel to show what can come from opportunities like this. The next day was a practical, on-the-water session with a strong fleet of 8 randomly allocated boats, sailing with a variety of experience and people meant great opportunity to learn from each other and the coaches.
When hereing from Milly, she states that "It was an incredible learning and inspiring experience overall, and now to be selected gives me hope as to what's to come in the future. I am looking forward to see what winter training has in store for us before the summer events begin".
