Claire Merry (RCYC) finished her series up with a solid second place finish in the final race of the fleet racing. Sarah Douglas (RCYC) and Violet Stafford (RCYC/KYC) came with the team to Lake Garda to experience their first European event.

The Laser team was led by senior team member Robert Davis (KYC) alongside development sailors Matt Ryder (SLYC) and Alex Heinzemann (RVYC). Robert continues to gain momentum throughout his season with another race win and top twenty result under his belt. Congratulations to these sailors:
