NSW Youth Championships

Posted in Reports by Sean Bly.


A number of Victorian sailors attended the NSW Youth Championships at Botany Bay this month. Laser was well represented with 21 Victorian entries. Victorians represented 15 of the 28 entries in the 4.7 class and 6 of the 20 entries in  the Radial class.

Conditions were difficult and varied over the weekend.  Saturday had a fading breeze however race management were able to get a number of races in for all classes.  With a varied and light breeze on Sunday the patience of the race officers finally paid off managing to get one race in at 4.30 pm.

After many frustrating delays and wind shifts on Monday the breeze finally filled in and we were able to round out the regatta with a further three races.

There were some fantastic results for our Victorians including the first female and first male overall in the 4.7 class.  Please view the results through the following link: http://www.ynswyouthchamps.org.au/
