JMST boat recipients make Topper Worlds Debuts

1

It is great to hear how the John Merricks Sailing Trust / OnBoard partnership is making a real difference to young sailors.

And as the latest applicants wait to learn if they will receive exclusive use of a new single-handed junior pathway boat for the next two years, it was great to find out two previous boat recipients made their Topper Worlds debuts this summer!

Upton Warren SC’s David Peaty, a 2014 JMST boat recipient, and Hill Head SC’s Arran Goodman, who ‘won’ his boat last year, headed to Loctudy, in Brittany, France in July for the Worlds, which attracted over 200 sailors in both 5.3 and 4.2 Topper fleets.

David, who turned 15 in August, achieved his pre-Worlds aim of qualifying for the Gold fleet to finish 51st out of 156 boats in the 5.3 fleet, while 11-year-old Arran, who’s only in his third season of sailing, loved racing in the 55-strong 4.2 fleet.
