Charlotte Webster takes Silver at Cyprus Open

Top-ranked Caymanian sailor Charlotte Webster won silver at the Cyprus National Championships in the Women’s Open Laser sailing class.

The eastern Mediterranean island nation provided warm weather and strong winds for the 4-day event that took place over the Easter weekend.

 Webster, a 1st year student at University of Exeter in the UK, has recently been confirmed as the Cayman Islands representative at this summer’s 24th Central American and Caribbean Games in El Salvador, and the 2023 Sailing World Championships in the Hague, Netherlands.

“Training and racing in Cyprus has been hard work but worth the effort” said Webster. “I was starting really well, but the strong winds on the final day led to a couple of capsizes where I lost places on the racecourse. My focus now is on the French Olympic Week regatta next week on the Cote D’Azure, as I continue my training and racing program, with the goal of qualifying for the PanAm Games in October, and the Olympics next year in Paris.”

 “I’d like to thank my parents, sponsors, coaches, the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee, the Sailing Club, and the Ministry of Youth, Sport, Culture & Heritage for all of their support.
