The Mirror Youth and Junior Championship was held at Southport S.C. over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Four races were held, with three to count for the championship.
Race One was held in bright sunshine and a steady force four southwesterly. Adrian Lynham, Mick Wright and Mike Preston all made good starts. However, fortunes changed dramatically on the first beat. Luke Turnbull recovered from an indifferent start to take the starboard side of the course and arrive at the windward mark in the lead.
