Congratulations to RSYS Youth Member Will Cooley and his team mate Rebecca Hancock who have won Gold in the Nacra 15 class at the Hempel Youth Sailing World Championship in Gdynia, Poland.
Close team work and consistency were key to the pair's unbeatable nine point lead, according to Will: 'Being consistent and working together as best as we can, that’s what this came from. There wasn’t any secret to it. All the effort we’ve put it, to see it come out the other end is just the best feeling.'
