THORP Academy’s Stewart brothers cruised to strong performances at the long Dam to Dam race over Kielder Water.

Luke achieved an impressive third in the second race and fifth overall in the series; a fantastic display given he did not compete at all on the Saturday.

The achievement for George and his sailing partner Abi was to complete the race given the conditions. For them it was an endurance race - taking three hours and three minutes to finish.

Luke sailed a Hartley 12 without jib and George was crew on the same type of boat.

The race Luke and George competed in was the second race in a series of two, the first taking place 24 hours earlier and was too windy to race safely.

The Dam to Dam race at Kielder was an open event which takes place twice a year. It covers around 26km by one boat and competitors enter from across the region and beyond.
