    11 boats entered the Handicap fleet for the 2009 RS Youth Champs hosted by Netley Sailing Club. On the friday after a practise race two races were sailed in an increasing breeze, a fresh 18 knots saw some of the lighter crews struggling to stay upright. It was James Goss & Emma Mackley in a RS500 taking line honours in both races with Jack Munnelly & Jack Holden 2nd in a 400 in race two with Tim & Matt Norris 2nd in race two.
     
    Saturday brought more wind and a lot of rain. So the weekend arrivals were in for a shock. Again the RS500's showed the way with Matt Johnson taking the win in race three. The 600's also had a battle on with Mike Ellis coming in 3rd but winning race 4 from Dan Hollands before gear failure took its toll for the rest of the event.

    As the wind built on sunday it was the 500's who stormed away with Goss & Mackley winning the title with the narrowest of margins from Johnson & Weatherhead . A good event was had by all even though there were many breakages. Many thanks to Netley SC for making the sailors welcome.
