Rising Star wins Gold for Lymington sailing duo at 420 World Championships
18-year-old sailors Vita Heathcote and Milly Boyle, both from Royal Lymington Yacht Club, have won GOLD at the 2019 420 Women’s World Championships in Portugal. The Lymington duo narrowly beat their closest rivals from Italy.
A clearly ecstatic Vita, who is sponsored by local law firm Moore Blatch, described the win as “the weirdest feeling ever” going on to say; “I can’t believe it has happened, I actually can’t. Winning the World Championships means so much to me; it is the culmination of many years of training and racing, out in all weathers and trying to be the best.”
“Sometimes it doesn’t go according to plan and you literally have to right the boat and, probably by now very wet, cold, exhausted and desperate, sail on and try to claw your way back up through the fleet.”
“After 5 years of 420s we finally did it and it is such a good feeling” added Vita.
The 420 World Championships saw 456 sailors from 24 nations compete in Vilamoura, Portugal, with racing concluding on 11th July.
Ed Whittington, Managing Partner, Moore Blatch said “We have many sailors in our midst and so understand both the physical and emotional challenges of sailing as a world class sport as well as the financial pressures these athletes face. We’re thrilled to see Vita enjoy such success and are proud to be supporting her.”
Vita is part of Moore Blatch’s Rising Star programme, which identifies inspirational local talent helping them to achieve their goals and aspirations through raising awareness and providing funding. Throughout the programme, Moore Blatch and Vita work together to provide inspiration and motivation to encourage others to follow their dream.
On the support that Moore Blatch provided, Vita commented: “The support I have received from Moore Blatch has been more than just help, it has been essential to me, and it lifted us up so that Milly and I could have a realistic chance of becoming the World Champions. Thank you to all at Moore Blatch!”
Other individuals who have received support from Moore Blatch’s Rising Star programme include Lucy Shuker, double Paralympic medallist and Great Britain’s No.1 Paralympic wheelchair tennis player.

Kathryn Grimes, Community Fundraising Officer, for Smile4Wessex, receives a cheque in the sum of £2,389.40 from Matthew Claxson, Partner, at local law firm, Moore Blatch LLP.
Matthew, along with a team from Moore Blatch LLP, recently walked 26 miles in one day from their Chandler’s Ford offices to their Lymington office in aid of Smile4Wessex.

Kathryn Grimes said “This is a fantastic achievement to walk 26 miles in one day and amazing fundraising for Smile4Wessex. The funds will be used to further our aims in support of neurological services at the Wessex Neurological Centre helping those in our region. Well done to all involved at Moore Blatch”.
Matthew Claxson said: “Having access to the right neurological treatment and rehabilitation from the outset is key to maximising your outcome after a brain injury. As a solicitor who works on behalf of those who have suffered a brain injury through no fault of their own, perhaps due to a road traffic collision or fall, I am aware through those clients as to the importance of neurological rehabilitation and I am keen to ensure that we continue to have in our region excellent neurological care. I therefore, with a team from Moore Blatch, was pleased to be able to undertake this challenging walk and raise for Smile4Wessex a substantial sum”
