Having had tremendous success this summer becoming UK Junior Optimist Champion, Ollie Grogs has just secured his place on the covetted GBR Squad with a good result at the ‘End of Season’ Championships held on Rutland Water 11th/12th Oct.   Racing against 225 sailors competing for Championship title and squad selection, Ollie had a consistent event in very tactical conditions that saw him finish 8th. Although frustrated by his own performance, selectors and coaches were impressed with this young sailor’s maturity and ability to remain focused. He joins a squad of Britain’s top 30 youth sailors for intense winter training under the supervision of the RYA Olympic development coaches.
