Optimist Worlds. Ian Walker on the Podium

Ian Walker.

by Richard Crockett

Too often our local sailors travel quietly to events, not letting anyone know, nor letting those at home know how they are progressing. So I was somewhat surprised to see that RSA has a lone campaigner at the Optimist Worlds in Antigua, and that at this stage he is on the podium in 3rd spot overall.

His name is Ian Walker, and after 6 races he has already won 3 races, with a 5th being his worst.

Today they have a lay-day, and then 3 more days of racing. Hopefully the rest day will rejuvenate Walker and see him sail to greater heights.

Wonderful sailing conditions in Antigua.
