British Youth Sailing Team 2014 Announced for RYA Youth National Championships
Jamie Meets HRH Princess Royal
In addition to extending his lead at the top of the leaderboard, Jamie also had the pleasure of meeting HRH Princess Royal.
“It was pretty good to meet HRH. It is not something you do every day to meet a Princess. She seemed on good form, I hope she enjoyed her day as much as I did. I think it is great to have her here. Sailing isn’t a very high profile sport in comparison to Rugby or Football so it is great to have her down her to see what we do.”
“I have had to fight really hard for this place and I want to prove to everyone that I have earned it and I want to do as well as possible. I’m going to do it for myself obviously, but also my parents who have put a lot of time and money into my sailing and the rest of my family and my coaches who have helped me so much.”
Achieving a Gold Medal plus an Education.
Jamie is dedicated to sailing and his dream is to ultimately win a Gold medal at the Olympics
“As I am training or competing during my time away from school. one of the challenges I face is keeping up with my school work. Going to Kip McGrath really helps me with this. My ultimate goal is to win a gold medal at the Olympics but I need a good education too. I am a competitive person and want to do equally well in my studies and my sailing. Kip McGrath are helping me to achieve this.” Jamie
Pip Watt, Centre Director of Kip McGrath Barnton, Currie and Livingston says:
“Jamie is an exceptional young man, He has been attending our centre in Currie for many years now and is always both cheerful and motivated. His dedication to both his schoolwork and his sailing is admirable. I am delighted he has made it this far in this competition. We wish him the very best of luck”.
