Nearly 300 youngsters are competing at the national youth regatta today (July 25), which is being held at Gorleston-on-sea.
A team of 30 school age sailors are flying the flag for Norfolk in the national regatta. And they are competing in sight of a Union flag donated by the nation's senior service.
Gorleston man Andy Goff, who is commodore of the National School Sailing Association regatta and is also a member at Broadland Rugby Club hopes the flag will inspire the young sailors during the event, which continues until Friday 29th July.

"The rugby club was given the flag by a Royal Navy connection and we are pleased to fly it proudly over the regatta."
Among the Norfolk sailors defending their titles is 12-year-old Emily Haslam from Buxton near Aylsham who has her sights set on winning a title having coming second in the "rookie class" last year.
"Taking part in a national event on the sea will be so different to sailing at Hickling - and the evening games are so much fun too."
The prestigious event is expected to provide a £500,000 boost for the local economy.
