09 Mar The future of Dinghy Racing
Owner of West Country Boat Repairs, Pete Vincent, has a lifelong passion for Dinghy Racing and likes nothing better than coaching keen young sailors.
He was at Restronguet Sailing Club this weekend and writes “So yesterday this was my place of work! 19 sailors under 25. 15 sailors under 20, 8 Lady helms majority between 15 and 18. Real sailing skill on show – I was so impressed with the boat handling skills downwind of such light teams it had to be seen to be believed.
I loved working with them. Keen, proper talent, all get on and what a place to learn. Made me so happy to think dinghy racing has a good future with them. Massive thanks to Kyle Brown for organising the day and being such an inspiration to most of these sailors. Kids listen to him he is so right!”
