Exeter sailors have put on a phenomenal performance this weekend at the BUCS Fleet Racing Championships, placing 1st overall in the women’s team and 3rd in the mens category!

Our sailors impressively managed to achieve podium positions in every fleet.

Firefly Fleet: 1st for Murray and Lewis
Fast Fleet: 1st for Jessie and Emma (sailing a 29er)
Slow Fleet: 1st for Lainey and Emily (sailing a 420)
Laser Fleet: 2nd for Monika Mikkola

Lainey Terkelsen, achieving a 1st place at her first ever BUCS event said that the event was really well organised with great socials – “It was really nice to see people from other uni’s as well.”

For seasoned sailor Lewis Lane, this was his fourth fleets event, but he says one of the strongest years Exeter have had for a while in terms of results – “With so many medals coming back to Exeter, it looks like we should be on track for another great year.”

A fantastic weekend of sailing with some great results for Exeter! Well done to everybody involved.
