Chelmarsh sailor wins 12th title

Chelmarsh Sailing Club’s Keith Wilkins has won his 12th World Championship title at the Laser Sailing World Championships held at St. Francis Yacht Club, San Francisco.

Over 300 sailors competed in 4 classes over the week long event. Keith, who was described as ‘the Star of this year’s Championship, if not of all time’, put in an outstanding performance in challenging and boisterous wind conditions up to 20 knots. Sailing against the backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge, former Olympic coach Keith coped with the steep waves and strong currents and had already secured the top slot with 2 races still to go. Keith has been competing at International level since 1976 and won his first major title after learning to sail just 2 years before.

Chelmarsh Sailing Club regularly holds Learn to Sail courses throughout the year as well as taster sessions. Youth sailors from Chelmarsh were runners upat the West Midlands ‘On Board’ Festival held at Bartley Green Sailing Club in September.
