1st team lost v Stowe, 10-6


Over half term, First and Second VIs competed against 22 other teams at the British Youth Team Racing Championships. The Second VI finished 22nd of 24, with a win over Ryde and only a close loss to eventual winners Rugby. The First VI won 7 from 10 races, but early losses to Sherborne and Winchester put the semi-finals just out of reach. The First VI finished 6th overall, and 4th school.

Ben Simmons later represented Oxfordshire in the National Schools Sailing Association's Team Racing Championships, his team losing narrowly in the semis but nonetheless picking up the Under 16 trophy.

Finally, this weekend the First VI competed as the only youth side at the prestigious Oxford Magnum, taking races off sides from London Universities and Southampton to finish the weekend 19th of 20.

Team of the week – U16B for their win at Marlborough
