A trio of Preparatory School sailors have been rewarded for their fine season with a regional squad selection.
Christian Cheesley, Llion Morris and Matthew Stubbins, all Year 6 pupils at Rydal Penrhos, have earned a place on the RYA North Wales Junior Topper Squad, which is a new sailing class within North Wales and through which they will be placed on the RYA development pathway.
The trio impressed selectors throughout what has been a superb season on the water for the school, and in particular at the recent RYA Welsh Zones Championship in Cardiff.
All three pupils undergo training and evening development sessions at the school, with 10-year-old Christian developing his craft at Rydal Penrhos only under the stewardship of head of sailing Max Todd.
This is the latest in a series of squad call-ups at the school, with a number of prep school pupils being selected for prestigious programmes in a number of classes.
Senior school deputy head Tim Cashell, said; “Congratulations to all three pupils on their well-deserved selection to the North Wales Junior Topper squad.
“Also a huge well done to our sailing staff Max, Andy, Dan, Olivia, Anna and Leah who have variously been responsible for the delivery of an excellent programme of sailing tuition as well as allowing so many of our pupils the opportunity to represent the school competitively.”
