QM youth windsurfers competing at the Techno 293 European Windsurfing Championships

QM are proud that two of our youth windsurfers are currently part of the 14 strong GB team competing at the Techno 293 European Windsurfing Championships at Michmoret in Israel.

Elektra Day-San (15) and Millie Searle (14) are both graduates of QM training , QM Team 15 with Therese and Paul, and are current members of RYA London and South East Zone Squad, and national squads. They also recently qualified as Assistant Instructors at QM.

It is early days on the racing but they certainly appear to be having a blast!

On top of this; our Team 15 Club the “Queen Mary Skimmers” came 3rd overall in the regional inter-club championships on Saturday! amazing news for our Youth windsurfers all round.

Elektra and Millie have both benefitted hugely from the RYA training schemes for young windsurfers, starting with Team 15 at QM and Zone Squad. Elektra in particular has gone from beginner to international racer in under 3 years. If you have a young U16 windsurfer who fancies going the same route please get in contact with Ben our chief windsurfing instructor at *chief.windsurf@queenmary.org.uk* for more info.

QM Team sending all the best to Millie and Elektra in their last few days of racing, and also to the rest of the GB squad out in Israel!

Special thanks to Howie for this report!
