We are very pleased to announce that Alex Blackmore has become the latest member of the OTC windsurf team. Ten-year old Alex started to sail with us at the OTC last Autumn after moving down to Dorset from Suffolk with his parents to concentrate on his sailing. Since this time Alex is regularly seen training at the centre, his enjoyment and development helping him gain a place in the Junior GB S/SW zone development squad over the winter. It is great to have him down the centre regularly and it’s tangible how much he enjoys sailing with the other young windsurfers we have down here.
Alex went on to say, “I’d like to thank Neil and all at QSW for all their support whilst I lived in Suffolk, and I am thrilled to be a part of the OTC and Gaastra team. With the help of Tris, Ross and the team I am looking forward to taking my sailing to a higher level,”
For the 2014 season Alex will use the Gaastra Cosmic, Savage and Cross sails for the defence of his BSA junior title, Alex will also be in action for Will’s Warriors in the region Team 15 events.
