Stamford sailor Ben Jennings finished third at the recent Topper Winter Regatta at Weymouth to claim his first podium place at a national event.

Ben, who is a member of Rutland Sailing Club and the U15 GB junior squad, took first place in the U15 category and won the second race of the regatta for his first race win at a national event.

The competition consists of a series races over two days and sailors spent up to six hours on the water each day in changeable sailing conditions.
