Congratulations to Robert Hazelwood

Robert Hazelwood achieved a British U21 Record equalling score of 3 buoys @ 10.25 metres at a competition at Lago Valle Maipo in Chile at the weekend.
Robert is keeping it in the family as this record was set in August 2003 by his cousin Will Asher. So its taken 15 years to equal it and the obvious challenge for Rob now is to beat it and make it his own. Well Done Rob Keep up the good work.
