ASWC Reading organises the first annual Inland Independent Schools Regatta

On October 4th our Reading centre hosted the first Independent Schools Inland Regatta. It was a great day with a total of 4 races, the weather was changeable and the sun started to burst through by the end of the day.

With an under 11 and an under 13 category on the same day, many of the children were excited to be racing against those they’re not normally on the water with. Some of the pupils were experienced lake sailors whilst others had never sailed inland before! This made for an interesting and lively day with a lot of laughter and smiles all around.

If you want to see more on the day, head to our Facebook page where we have various videos of the starts! We are looking forward to the 2019 regatta and hoping to see some familiar faces. The day wouldn’t have been possible without Burghfield Sailing Club, many thanks to all of the volunteers and race officers involved.
