As a result of the inaugural National Sailing League Oceania event organised by directors Mark Turnbull and Howard Elliott and hosted by the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron at the end of April, the RSYS Youth team of Jack Littlechild (skipper), Max Paul, Maddie O’Shea and Alex Rozenauers (pictured above) are heading to the Youth Sailing Champions League (SCL) Final 2019, June 22-24 during Kiel Week in Germany, the first time Australia will be part of the intense competition.
Jack Littlechild, our helmsman, said: “As the first Australian team to compete in a SAILING Champions League event we are extremely excited for the racing in Kiel and thankful for this amazing opportunity. We are also very proud to be representing our country and the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron. We hope that through this event we can help build the National Sailing League at home as it is a great opportunity for all the sailing clubs in Australia and New Zealand to compete against each other in a really fun format of racing.”
