Beth, on the other hand, is a first timer at the ISAF Youth World Championship and having moved upon an age group from the under 17 fleet last year will have a tough fleet to contend with. However she has shown her worth on the international scene with a fourth place at last years World Championships showing that when the pressure is on she can come up with the performance.
We wish them both the best of luck in what is billed as the 'Youth Olympics' of the sailing world and highly regarded as the most important of youth sailing championships. It is no coincidence that there is a high correlation between success at the ISAF Youth World Championships and success on the senior International scene, Ben AINSLIE, Chris DRAPER, Sarah AYTON, Nick ROGERS and Nick DEMPSEY to name but a few, are all past medal winners at the ISAF Youth World Championships and have all progressed to have extremely successful senior sailing careers. We hope that Beth and Peter can follow in their footsteps.
