Victorian Youth Championships 2022 for 420s, 29ers, Lasers and Optimist Update
Over the 17-18th of April, RYCV in Williamstown Victoria, held the VIC youth sail championships for 2022. We had many WSC sailors representing the club to compete and achieve some great results, as aussie sailing talent were battling it out for Australian Sailing Youth Team (ASYT). We had a mix of WSC boats including our 420 team, 29ers, lasers and Opti's.

Competitors were treated to a range of conditions across the four days of racing, but for many it was a time to celebrate after two years of border restrictions had played havoc with the national youth sailing schedule. As a result, the event doubled up as the selection event for the ASYT, with those athletes going on to compete at this years Youth Sailing World Championships in The Hague, The Netherlands.

The regatta also acted as the selection event for the National Youth Camp, with 40 sailors invited to attend the camp immediately after the regatta.

The camp included class-specific sessions, information sessions from athletes and experts, goal setting and the patience required in managing moving from youth level sailing to more senior levels of competition. Team building also featured at the camp, helping athletes to understand the value of sharing learning and working with others to support the team getting better.

For our Optis prior to the event, we had Zara Marks, Goro Tomishima, Mia Austin, Harry Pilkington training amongst Australia's best Optimist sailors in the lead up to their international events. Zara will be representing the club at the Optimist Europeans in Italy, Goro and Mia will be competing at the Asian/Oceania Championships in South Korea, and Harry will be representing us at the World Championships in Turkey.
