THERE was satisfaction for windsurfers Jonathan Dodd and George Stewart when they hit the water in Wakefield.

THERE was satisfaction for windsurfers Jonathan Dodd and George Stewart when they hit the water in Wakefield.

The two Thorp Academy students, members of the Kielder Water Sailing Club T15 team, were involved in the first event of the 2017 RYA North-East Inter T15 club series.

Jonathan, the team captain, made his first outing in the competitive 6.8 fleet and came a credible mid fleet against some stiff competition at the Pugneys Watersports Centre.

George, sailing in the 4.5 fleet, won the supercross (a combination of racing and trick skills) and came third overall.
