Rory and Harvey lift European crown


Ogston Sailing Club duo Rory Mackenzie and Harvey Martin have lifted the European Mirror Dinghy crown.

Helmsman Rory, 17, from Bradwell, and crew Harvey, 13, from Alfreton, sailed their way to victory at Poole Yacht Club in Dorset against 84 other sailors.

Out of 11 races sailed, in challenging conditions, they won seven races.

Last year the duo won the National Dinghy title and earlier this summer, they competed separately with other crews in the National Schools Sailing Regatta on Olympic home waters at Weymouth.

Rory won the Fast Handicap fleet and Harvey won the Slow Handicap fleet.
