It is the second time Kitty and the third time Rose have been selected for this prestigious squad.

Only 18 out of the region’s top young male and female sailors represent the South West out on the water as part this team.

The girls were selected by the British sailing coaches on the basis of performance and commitment to a programme of training and competition over a period of several years as well as the results of a regional qualifier. Rose placed as first mixed boat in the South West with her sailing partner Benjy, whilst Kitty and Lily placed 7th in the region.

The girls will now attend training sessions with world-class coaches as they prepare to compete at a number of national competitions.

Joining the squad is the first step on the Royal Yachting Association’s Olympic Pathway. The RYA pathway is renowned as one of the world’s most extensive racing and race training programmes for sailors under 16 preparing them to represent the sport and their country at the highest levels.
