Two Thomas Hardye students selected for elite yachting squad

Will and Ollie

Oliver Fellows10ZL and William Adler 10AS have been selected for the RYA National Topper Squad (Squad consist of 16 members)

This is part of the Royal Yachting Association’s  pathway from Club to Olympic sailing. Being a National Squad member will give them access to the world class national training programme for Britain's top Junior sailors. They will attend weekend and residential training events in different parts of the country throughout this winter and next year. They are also entitled to free gym membership and encouraged to apply for sponsorship!

They have trained over several years to get to this position, it has been very challenging, just recently they were out racing for 6 hours in Portland Harbour in 30 knot winds!
