PUGNEYS Pirates were crowned RYA North Zone Team15 junior windsurfing champions for the second year in a row after success at their home venue last Sunday.

The Pirates will now compete in the national final, the Team15 Champions Cup, against the Zone Champions from other regions of the UK, at Northampton Sailing Club on October 13-14.

Pirates 14-year-old captain Matthew Carey is quietly optimistic for their chances: “Last year was our first year in the Champions Cup and we have learned a lot since then.

“I really hope we all do well and we have five RYA Zone Squad sailors in our team so we should be quite strong.”
