Rydal Penrhos pupil Fflur Pierce enhanced her growing reputation with a podium finish at the Eric Twiname Junior Sailing Championships.
Sailing has been at the heart of Rydal Penrhos life for more than 60 years. It allows our pupils to build confidence on the water and gain new skills as part of the school’s specialist centre, which is officially accredited by the Royal Yachting Association.
The school’s stunning location, proximity to the seafront and the opportunity to partake in water sports across the Colwyn Bay coastline offers a significant benefit to the delivery of an outstanding Outdoor Education programme.
This is something that remains hugely popular, with many pupils competing at events across the country and earning selections to national and Team GB level squads as a result of their exceptional efforts.
Fflur Pierce is one of Rydal Penrhos’ rising stars in the sport. The pupil began her sailing journey as a Prep pupil and has flourished in the face of some stern competition to further enhance her status.
One notable recent triumph from the pupil came at the prestigious Eric Twiname Junior Championships, which took place at Rutland Sailing Club and featured some of the brightest young sailors from across the nation.
Fflur competed in the Feva category and produced a series of outstanding displays throughout the weekend to quickly rise up the standings en route to a well-deserved and impressive second-place finish overall.
This represents another significant accomplishment from Fflur, who is set for a busy summer of action on the water in pursuit of additional accolades.
Everyone at Rydal Penrhos would like to congratulate Fflur on her recent success and wish her the very best of luck in the coming weeks.
