Bryony Shaw Wins Windsurfing Bronze

Its really difficult for the MD Roy Griffiths to concentrate this morning as the excitement of watching the Olympic Sailing events is proving too much for him.
Olympic bronze, silver, gold medals
Roy is a keen sailor and races from Castle Cove Sailing Club which is right by the sailing area for the 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. The main reason for his excitement is that the daughter of club friends, Hazel & Brian, Bryony Shaw has just won a bronze medal in the ladies RX Windusrfing. She has worked tirelessly and shown great strength in her first Olympics.

Other Weymouth windsurfer Nick Dempsey missed out in fourth place which has produced mixed emotions but the rest of the team including CCSC club member Sarah Ayton have done a brilliant job on behalf of Team GBR.

All of the sailing team use the Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy for training and we regularly see Ben Ainsley, Paul Goodison and Ian Percy practising their skills. Fingers crossed for tomorrows Star Class event which could see another gold for Team GBR.
