Krish and Evie Bhogal have had an extremely hectic time on the Topper circuit just lately taking part in both the World Championships and UK National championships during the past few weeks.
The Worlds were held on Lake Garda, Italy over nearly a week of hard racing against around 150 sailors from around the world.
By the end of the week, Krish not only qualified for the ‘Gold’ fleet but subsequently finished 47th overall. That’s inside the top 50 at the World Championships – that deserves a rather big round of applause in my book :-D Well done young man!
Eve was competing in the Topper 4.2 Championship during the same period and ended 29th overall – so inside the Top 30 in the world!
Spectacular results for these Manor Park youngsters….but it didn’t end there, not by a long way.
Pretty much on arrival back in the UK, the boats were packed again, the kit all sorted again for the UK Topper Nationals at the 2012 Olympics venue of Weymouth & Portland.
Another long hard week of qualifying races saw Krish qualify for Gold fleet status, finishing 52nd in the final set of races.
Eve, again, was sailing in the smaller 4.2 Topper fleet and following her own week of racing finished 41st overall.
Two solid weeks of really tough sailing for these MPSC youngsters. I can barely get through two days sometimes, let alone two weeks so another huge round of applause to both Krish and Eve.
Lets not forget, though, that Annie and Harmesh had to work wonders to get the kids to both of these events – as they have for the entire year during the various traveller events around the country – often with Krish in one place and Eve in another.
Guys, I think you deserve a bit of a break now :-D Hopefully we’ll see you all very soon.
