NSW Youth Championships

The Squadron was well represented at the NSW Youth Championships held at Point Wolstoncroft on the shores of Lake Macquarie over the long weekend 5-7th October.

The event is the first big regatta of the Youth sailing season and more than 270 boats competed in 11 classes. RSYS fielded 18 sailors across the Optimist Intermediate and Open division, Laser 4.7s and Radials, and in Windsurfers.

RSYS Youth Members Otto Henry (pictured 2nd from right) had a convincing win in the Laser Radial class, and Mina Ferguson (pictured far let) placed 4th and won Best Female in the Laser. In the Windsurfers, Vaughan O’Shea placed 3rd in the Techno Plus class.

The Club sends out a big Thank You to Member Nikki O’Shea who played ‘Camp Mum’, preparing meals for all the RSYS competitors and their families who stayed together on site at Point Wolstoncroft.

The next big regattas for the Youth classes are Sail Sydney in early December and National titles held in Melbourne shortly after Christmas. 

The RSYS summer Youth sailing programme will restarts after the school holidays at the Club on 20th October 2019.
