Fflur’s second at RS Tera End of Season Championships
November 17, 2021

Rydal Penrhos pupil and talented sailor Fflur Pierce secured an impressive finish at the RS Tera End of Season Championships 2021.

We are enormously proud of our Sailing provision at Rydal Penrhos, which is something available to pupils from a very early age and has seen many go on to achieve great success both regionally, at national events and even to international-standard competitions.

The school has also assisted in the development of young sailors at its RYA accredited centre en route to national and Team GB squad selections. This has further enhanced a programme that has been a huge part of Rydal Penrhos life for more than 60 years.

Another shining light that’s emerged in recent years is Fflur Pierce, who enhanced her growing reputation on the Sailing circuit with another outstanding performance at the RS Tera End of Season Championships 2021, which was held at Draycote Water Sailing Club.

After a difficult first race, Fflur came to the fore in Race 2 to cross the line first and the Year 9 pupil followed this up with two exceptional seconds in Races 3 and 4 to put her in a strong position heading into Sunday’s action-packed schedule.

Fflur, who was representing Port Dinorwic Sailing Club at the event, got off to the best possible start with another victory in Race 5 with a patient approach that enabled her to take advantage of a slight opening to succeed.

Although things did not necessarily go according to plan in Races 6 and 7, Fflur dug deep in the eighth and final race of the championships to attain her third second-place finish of the competition.

After the final scores were tallied, Fflur came away with an outstanding second-place finish as a result of her incredible efforts throughout the championships, which represents a significant achievement for a pupil that is thriving on the water and across all areas of Rydal Penrhos life.

The Rydal Penrhos RYA Training Centre Sailing and Water-Sports provision is for all pupils who love being in, on and around the water, enabling them to participate and enjoy the freedom of boating, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking in a safe and fun environment.

Whether a beginner, intermediate or at an advanced level we have something to offer to help your child get the most from their time with us and from the water.

Everyone at Rydal Penrhos would like to congratulate Fflur on another incredible accomplishment against some of the best young sailors anywhere in the country. We could not be prouder of you!
