Brothers Andrew and Murray Buchan swapped the classroom for the high seas recently when they competed in the Formula 18 Catamaran World Championships in Barcelona. They were among 130 teams from 23 countries in the competition.
Murray and Andrew placed second in the Youth U23 team division, following 14 qualifying and final races. Andrew said they entered to gain experience in competition sailing and were thrilled to take out second place.
The brothers, aged 17 and 15, have been sailing for about seven years. They have their sights set on next year’s World Championships, which will be held in Italy.
Well done Andrew and Murray, we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours!
