Henry Koe sails off with silver at the London Youth Games!
Henry, member of the Koe family sailing dynasty, has come back with a silver medal in the London Youth Games.
He took his Topper 4.2 out on the notoriously windy Queen Mary Reservoir for six races (sounds exhausting!). He put a poor start in the first race behind him to come second and first in the next two races. From then on Henry was never out of the top three.
The strong winds in the morning fell away in the afternoon – proving Henry can sail in all conditions.
Henry sails at Southbank (sometimes allowing dad Digby to crew!) when he can. We’d like to say we taught him everything he knows. But I think before long he’ll be teaching us.
From everyone at Southbank, well done Henry!
