Windsurfing Success for Noelle
Gordano Sixth Form student, Noelle Finch was victorious in the RS:X windsurfing U17 fleet on the final day of racing at the 2011 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships held in Cagliari, Sardinia.
Noelle who previously won the U17 title at the RS:X Europeans last month, went into the final day with a six point cushion on her closet rival for the U17 gold medal.
After the event Noelle commented “There was a real mix of conditions throughout the week and the competition was stiff. Racing the older U19 girls was a real challenge and the U17 girl from Israel was also a strong competitor for me. I had, however, raced some of them at the Europeans so I sort of knew what I was up against. To be finishing races in such challenging conditions and to be competing at the top end of the fleet with competitors a lot older than myself was very pleasing!”
