Budding sailor Thomas Parkhurst finished second overall in the Laser 4.7 Open and National Championships in Abersoch, North Wales.

The 16-year-old, a former pupil of Hill House School, has also recently sailed in the European Championships in Murcia, Spain, and the World Championships in Nieuwport, Belgium.

His success is a result of ongoing hard work and determination as well as squad training and coaching as part of the RYA pathway and racing at his local club, Beaver Sailing Club.

He now transitions into the Laser Radial in preparation for future National, European and World events over the coming months.
