Youths 2014 podium
The event took place in Weymouth from 12 – 18 April and is for sailors under the age of nineteen. There were 106 Laser Radials in Jamie’s fleet.  At fifteen Jamie is the youngest Radial sailor to win this prestigious event and will now represent The British Sailing Team at the ISAF World Youth Championships in Tavira, Portugal this July. The ISAF World Youth Championships is like a youth Olympics as only one sailor represents each country per class.
