Southport 2016: report by the junior Southport Team Southport 2016: report by the junior Southport Team
Following the exploits of the fantastic juniors this weekend, this is the report that we put together throughout the day. A few hair-raising moments to be sure, but a good day was had by all!

MSC juniors at the Southport 12 Hour race 2016 MSC juniors at the Southport 12 Hour race 2016
Yesterday, 11 of our juniors spent 12hrs in the club Enterprise, sailing in a circle anti-clockwise around two islands in a shallow marine lake in the North-West of England. Hosted by Southport SC, there were 24 Ents, GPs, and Argos taking part, with nice wind increasing as the day went on. Midland SC had a mixed team, and our aim was to have fun and gather racing experience. The kids were great, and really enjoyed the day, and they supported each other during the race, especially in the face of the occasional adversity brought about by sudden gusts from the seaside. They have really grown together as a unit, and I am sure we will have some exciting results from them in the future! Altogether they managed to complete 50 laps, and did not come last. It's great to see their commitment and potential to become great sailors. Massive thanks to Paul Young and Adam Maclean, who both put a lot of work into making it happen and managing the team on the day. And of course the parents for driving their kids up the M6 on a Friday evening to get to Southport
