Plain Sailing for Kaitlyn
A summer of sailing for Kaitlyn Wyatt, who has travelled across Europe since breaking up from school, to compete in international sailing competitions.

Kaitlyn, who has only been sailing for five years, returned to the UK and Hayling Island for the ILCA National Championships, back in the ILCA6 the Olympic dinghy, she was up against all age groups in mixed gender racing over six days, finishing fifth female overall and second U19.
