Individual Achievements

Isabella participated in the Optimist Western Cape Sailing Championships in Saldanha Bay during the holidays. Isabella placed 6th and was the 2nd female overall, amongst a fleet of 17 A-fleet competitors. Congratulations on this excellent achievement.

Before the Level 5 lockdown, Skye qualified for the Level 3 gala to be held in Oudtshoorn, but sadly that was cancelled. Skye has since participated in 3 galas and in each one she has performed Personal Bests (PB’s). A new set of qualifying times have come out for swimming and, as of now, Skye has qualified for two events at Junior National level. They are the 200m backstroke and the 800m freestyle.

Skye also competed in a Biathlon this past weekend where she placed 1st in the U15 section and produced a PB (3.31 for 1km run; 1.06 for 100m swim). These are all excellent results and we congratulate you on both your Swimming and Biathlon results.
