Dan Simpson won the RYA Thames Valley Young Sailor of the Year and was automatically nominated for the Raymarine Young Sailor of the Year.
Apparently he has made it into the last four and the ceremony is at the London boat Show on the 6th Jan 07. (Princess Anne dished out the gongs last year!)
It would be brilliant to see a windsurfer win this prestigious award, and we wish Dan all the best. He certainly deserves it.
Dan’s 2006 results are as follows:
Ø British Formula Open Youth Champion 06
Ø RYA British Formula Youth Champion 06
Ø UKWA Formula Youth Champion 06 (4th overall)
Ø UKWA Slalom Youth Champion 06 (3rd overall)
Ø Weymouth Speed Week Youth Champion 06
