Yachting Success

Congratulations to Grosvenor pupil Tom Purdon, Lower 6th, who has enjoyed a plethora of success at various Yachting competitions over recent months. 

In early July Tom, who sails as a member of Strangford Lough Yacht Club, was selected to represent Northern Ireland at Under 17 level at the Leinster 2014 Championships, where he achieved an outstanding victory in the Laser 4.7 class against a high-class field.  At the end of July, meanwhile, Tom achieved 5th place at the 2014 U.K. Laser 4.7 National Championships, held in Largs, Scotland.

Well done to Tom on his recent successes and we wish him the best of luck throughout the remainder of the season.
