Bourne Grammar School pupil Hannah Stowe has been selected for the Topper Association National Youth Racing Squad.
The squad is for the country’s best Topper-class sailors aged 13-17, and offers a high quality coaching programme.
Hannah was selected due to her outstanding results in a range of national and regional sailing events this year:
At the National Championships at Pwllheli in July, she raced to 119th out of 280 sailors and was the 37th girl.
She then took seventh place (fourth girl) in the North zone Championships in September, as well as third place in the Midlands Area Racing Series which runs from March until September.
Hannah, who is a member of Rutland Sailing Club, trains and races across the country most weekends.
