Recently CHPSC youth member Rowan and his crew Daniel Blight became the 29er European Eurosaf Youth champions in Gydynia Poland, beating off boats from 8 European nations. In shifty changeable offshore wind conditions with days of 20knots gusting 35knots and other days of light variable winds, they the event led from Day 1 building their lead from 1 point on Day 1 and 2,  to 4 points on Day 3 and then 6 points on Day 4 to go into the medal race in a strong position. They sailed the medal race tactically covering the podium contenders to finish in 3rd and take the title with a 4 point margin.
