Sail Brisbane is also the last regatta of the Yachting Australia Youth Sailing Grand Prix. Keeping in line with the High Performance Strategy and the Australian Sports Commission’s ‘Pathway to Success’, the Youth Sailing Grand Prix is designed to build a stronger national domestic competition that encourages youth participation and competition. The Sail Brisbane presentation is where the winners will be announced.

Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron recently hosted Queensland Youth Week incorporating the Australian Youth Championship with 238 entries. The expansive rigging lawns were bustling however there was still plenty of room to move across the grassed area.
'Sail Brisbane is another chance for us to show off our expansive facilities here at the Squadron. The regatta is of international standards and we always look forward to welcoming foreign visitors to our club, said RQYS Commodore Greg Clarke.
Sail Brisbane launches a busy summer program for Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron. The active club will host the Laser, Sharpie, Optimist and 29er Australian Championships, the Australian Youth Championships and then the Laser Masters World Championship in March.
