Plane Sailing for Kaitlyn

After just one year of competing in ILCA 4 dinghies (formerly Lasers), Kaitlyn Wyatt, a student at Gordon’s School has been chosen to represent Great Britain in the ILCA 4 Youth World Championships in Portugal, this August! Kaitlyn has been sailing competitively since 2018 and is ranked in the top five female ILCA 4 sailors nationally.  She achieved her selection after a weekend in Weymouth in which she competed in the final of seven ILCA 4 qualification events. It was the largest ILCA 4 qualification event ever held in the UK and featured the largest female contingent. Kaitlyn finished as the leading female sailor with an invitation to represent GB at both the European and World Championships. Sadly her GCSE exams mean she is unable to compete in the Europeans, but the 15 year old will make it for the world championships! Congratulations Kaitlyn and best of luck!
