Sailing Stars

Sisters Ariana (S5), Katya (S4) and Millie Johnson (S1) took all three podium places at the RYA Scottish Zone Sailing and Windsurfing Championships in September

The sisters sailed in four races over five hours in low wind conditions on Loch Lomond, meaning lots of extra effort to maximise their speed when sailing. 

Ariana, who won the RYA Scotland Windsurf Champion Salver, said: "On the day of the event, Katya and I were level in the lead having won two races apiece. 

"The wind dropped on the Sunday and there were another four races, I scraped ahead of Katya, with three wins to one. 

"Millie came third in our windsurfing category when our closest rival dropped out with a back injury and I was awarded the RYA Scotland Windsurf Champion Salver."

Last month, the trio took part in the Scottish Inland Windsurfing Championships at St Mary's Loch in the Scottish Borders.

On this occasion, Ariana was awarded first place and the Scottish Junior Windsurfing Shield. Katya came a close second and Millie also sailed very well. 

The girls are now looking forward to their third year taking part in the Scottish Windsurfing Development Squad winter training weekends at the Cumbrae Sportscotland Centre.
