After months of preparation the day is almost here for our junior sailors. Eli Liefting with Rose Dickson and Hamish McLaren with Henry McLachlan, on Sunday 12th July will embark on a nearly 18,000km journey from Auckland to Travemunde in Germany to compete in the RS Feva World Championships!
Since these two crews managed 1st and 2nd under 16s at the first ever RS Feva National Championships held in April this year, they have spent nearly 40 hours training in the RAYC’s Fevas, not to mention countless other hours spent training and racing in their Optimists. Hopefully the extensive hours of sailing they have managed to fit in around their busy school and social lives will make them competitive when they race against the 160 strong fleet in Germany.
Congratulations team! You have put in all the hard work and now is the time to enjoy the results and have fun competing overseas! We will be following you closely! All the best from everyone at RAYC!
