Charlotte FitzGerald, and Annie Sibthorp scooped first lady helm, first juniors and first overall to become the Mirror Welsh Champions 2009.

The RYA National Junior Squad pairing saw off multiple World and National Champions, in a closely fought eight race series at this summer’s World Championship venue, Pwllheli SC. Tying on points, former Fireball World Champion, Andy Smith and son Tom, had to settle for second place on count back. 2005 Mirror World Champion, Ross Kearney sailing with Katy Jones steadily improved during the series to move up to third, just pipping Juniors Tom Lovesey and Milly Pugh by one point.

On the first day, in large waves and light breeze, Charlotte, 14, and Annie,13, sailed away from the 29 boat fleet to score two firsts. National Champions Emma and Martina Barry also found speed with a second and third. The third race showed a change in rankings with Andy & Tom winners and several boats OCS, including Charlotte & Annie and Ross & Katy. After the first day Andy and Tom Smith led with Emma and Martina Barry a point behind. Ed and Beth Grey lying in third.

Day 2 brought the sun, with a slight delay on shore before the first race was battled between the Fitzes. Charlotte and Annie claiming first and Izzy FitzGerald and Emily Peters taking second. Ross and Katy pipped Tom and Milly to third. Charlotte and Annie also took race 5 followed by Andy and Tom and Ross and Katy. The last race of the day was won by juniors Tom Lovesey and Milly Pugh beating Andy and Tom Smith with juniors Hugo Sloper and Emma Spruce picking up third.

The final day dawned with flat calm but after a will we - won’t we sail, the sea breeze kicked in providing good conditions. The penultimate race proved a heavily port biased line and the race was won by Ross and Katy who crossed the fleet on port. Andy and Tom were second so went into the last race leading by two points from Charlotte and Annie with Tom & Milly lying in third. The race started with Andy and Tom going right but Ed and Beth chose left and came out with a strong lead. They held their lead all race with Ross and Katy finishing second just ahead of Charlotte and Annie.

Matt and Ben Lulham-Robinson sailed consistently to be first RYA Zone Squad boat. Keeping it in the family Roseanna Yeoward sailing with Charlotte Brown and Harry Yeoward sailing with Nick Elsdon were second and third youths, after Ed & Beth Grey.
