SCSC Sailor Tom Pollard 5th Uk sailor.

St Catherine’s Sailor Tom Pollard has just finished 5thBritish Sailor in the recent Laser 4.7 Worlds held in Nieuport Belgium.

Travelling as the Clipper Bursary winner and with his father, Tom produced some excellent results over the week away. His father , Jon, comments…

“….Tom had a very enjoyable and positive time at the Laser 4.7 Worlds. His best day sailing was on day 3 when he got a 19th and 4th position  – one of the highest by any GB sailor. Sadly on day 4 the winds were light and patchy with huge shifts and the results moved him down from gold to silver fleet for the last 2 days. He sailed well in silver to finish 26th and top GB in silver fleet and 5th GB boy overall. It was a great event with sailors from 45 countries.”

We look forward to welcoming Tom back after racing in the Nationals with Jon, and wish them both the best of luck.
