The European Youth Go Championship got under way with the Opening Ceremony on the Friday night. The players were called to order by the Arundel town crier and after short speeches they were entertained by Rhubarb the clown. Some players then took part in the British Lightning, others took an early night after long journeys.
The first round was held on Saturday morning. 89 young players took part in the three age groups: Under-20 (12), Under-16 (35), Under-12 (42). Results will be posted after the second round this afternoon.
The British Open is also under way with nearly 60 players from both the UK and the rest of Europe.
