Aiming For Tokyo

Date and Time 01-Feb-17 Wed 19:30 - 22:00


Winter Wednesday Social Event

1st February with Chew’s Ellie Curmpsty Podium Potential sailor.

The Cumpsty family have been members of Chew for years. Some of you may well remember when a cheerful, enthusiastic, very talented and very young Ellie first beat you in club racing!!  Her illustrated talk will cover her “journey” to the top of the Topper and Laser junior and youth national fleets and on to the 2020 Olympic Podium Potential squad.  What does it mean to be “podium potential?” – targets, expectations, training, funding.

The RYA squads and training programmes tend to take sailors away from the club. Ellie is proud to be a member of Chew and continues to sail here as often as she can.  It has been lovely to see her coaching our Topper sailors over the last few months. Her talk will appeal to members of all ages.
