Ryan is making his way to Topper World Championships

Ryan Walford, a year 10 pupil from Hethersett Academy is making waves in the sailing world.

Last season Ryan competed in numerous local and national sailing events. In July Ryan narrowly missed out on second place in the National Sailing Association National Regatta in Weymouth, finishing in an excellent fourth position.

In September, he triumphed at the local Broadland Youth Regatta and has also continued to compete in the Topper National Series.

Ryan’s achievements have resulted in him being selected for the ITCA GBR 5.3 National Squad for which he will continue to train hard for over the winter months.

As if his previous achievements weren’t enough, Ryan has also been asked to compete in the Great Britain team at the Topper World Championships! Ryan and his family will be heading to the stunning Lake Garda, Italy in July next year. 

We wish him all the best with his competitions and look forward to reporting on his achievements in the coming year.
