Carsington Combined Squad Weekend 16th-17th March


Last weekend was a weekend to remember with regards to getting all the squads together and eyeing out our future opponents when it comes to the big competitions. It was fun-filled with the squads doing their own work individually in the morning and then coming together in the afternoons for some racing. Also on Sunday morning each squad did some individual fitness however after that, we all came together to do some team games (which the North Squad won all of-I hasten to add).

The 2012/13 NJS started their first 4 day residential with the land day at the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Acadamy (WPNSA) on Saturday 27th October. After the warm up the whole squad was ready for their fitness test. During the day we completed agility, leg power and arm strength tests. We also did a bleep test which is harder than it sounds but all the effort was worth it because the Mirror fleet proved to be the fittest double handers, beating the Fevas and Cadets.
