2017 City of Rockingham WA Youth Championships
by Australian Sailing
The Western Australia Youth Championships will be hosted by The Cruising Yacht Club of Western Australia from September 27 to 28 with in excess of 100 competitors expected to compete across ten classes.
Local sailor and Australian Sailing Youth Team representative Elyse Ainsworth has previously competed in the WA Youth Championships and recommended that all local sailors get involved.
“I have competed in two WA Youth Champs and it is always a good experience to come back to my home state and race against some of the best youth sailors in the country,” Elyse said. “Its good practice to test all the racing components before the nationals at the end of the year.”
“The Youth Champs are always a good opportunity to improve your speed and techniques before heading off to such a major regattas over the Summer sailing season.”
