Will MicMillan and Gray Morris compete at the IQ Foil Worlds
Congratulations to Woollahra members Will McMillan and Grae Morris who recently completed in the 2022 IQ worlds in Brest, France.
Will McMillan placed 59th and Grae morris placed 63rd. Both won heats in the qualifying rounds.
Grae Morris himself said of that win, It honestly felt like a this is where I belong moment. I know Im fast enough to be up there constantly, I just have a bit more learning and experience to cover off before thats going to happen. Its annoying and frustrating to be stuck in Silver Fleet, but all I can do now is learn and gain from these experiences.
A big thanks to Wichard, our sponsors, for supply us with important parts, like the snap shackles, for our club boats! We use Wichard parts on our Sailing School fleet and are delighted with the reliability and durability.
Wichard Pacific has been supplying the Australian Marine Industry since 2002. They provide the Club with a huge range of super reliable chandlery items. Our boats get a lot of use and we are very please to have our preferred parts supplier as a sponsor.
Woollahra Optis Perform well in the Nations Capital
Well done to all 18 of our sailors who represented WSC at the 2022 ACT Opti Champs at Canberra Yacht Club. Huge congratulations to all of our sailors, many competing at their first regatta.
