13 August 2006

Liam R0und UKWA racer Liam Round GBR948 takes under 15 title at Youth & Master Formula Worlds in Westende, Belgium. Racing over 5 days in light wind conditions Liam beat his nearest under 15 rival by 15 points.

Liam was the only GBR sailor to leave the event with a podium finish, Dan Simpson narrowly missed 3rd place overall in the under 17 Junior Fleet, on equal points with Sebastien Kordel, Kordel took 3rd place due to a lower discard.

Liam will be concentrating on the slalom events for the rest of the year, where at present he is 1st Junior in the challenge fleet. Liam would like to take this opportunity to thank Total Options for their support in supplying his Exocet boards for both Formula and Slalom this year .
