East Coast Championships 2022
Over the June long weekend, we had an amazing number of WSC sailors represent the club in the East Coast Champs at GRSC. The regatta provided some great racing and a mix of tough conditions for our sailors.

In the Optimist open fleet, WSC made up 10 out of the 27 sailors, representing more than a 1/3 of the fleet. An amazing show of numbers, highlighting the Opti squad's hard work and training over summer and the clubs growing junior program.
  • 1st 11yr old was Stirling McKay;
  • 1st 10yr old was Seb Tucker;
  • Optimist Intermediate fleet Seb Tucker took out 1st place.; and
  • 5 WSC sailors in the first 11 places for the Optimist Open Fleet.
Congratulations!

In the 29er fleet, there were 3 sailors in the top 10. Keizo Tomishima and Connor Warner took out 3rd overall. Congratulations to the 9er fleet.

Following the European circuit
We have been following the many sailors competing in regattas on the European circuit, lots of competitive racing and excellent results are being achieved! Over the first week of June, we had competitors in the Hempel World Cup Allianz Regatta. The Aussies had great success, with many making up places in the medal races. Jack Ferguson took out 8th overall in the 49er.

Sailors are taking the opportunity to train in The Hague where the World Sailing World Championships will be held next year. This event will be the first chance for sailors to qualify for the Olympic Games. Others will be training in Marseille in the south of France, which will be the sailing venue for the 2024 Olympic Games.

The Aussies were back in action for their next regatta, Kiel Week in Germany from the 18th - 26th of June for more racing. There were some strong contenders, and a tough week of racing with many cancelled races due to light wind. Many fleets had up to 100 sailors, making for competitive and busy racing. In the 49ers we had:
  • Jack Ferguson and Max Paul in 24th;
  • Tom Cunich and Miles Davey in 43rd;
  • Otto Henry and Flynn Twomey in 45th; and
  • Ryan Littlechild and Jack Hilderbrand in 62nd;
In the 49FX we had:
  • Olivia Price and Evie Haseldine in 14th; and
  • Mina Ferguson and Madeleine McLeay in 33rd;
