Flying Ants on the Perth Skyline - 2012/13 Sunsmart FA National Pete Kovesi
Ant sailors in the competition are aged from nine to 15 years old with male, mixed and female skipper crew combinations. Many current Flying Ant sailors are aspiring to move into the 29er class following the footsteps of older siblings participating in the 9ers National regatta in Melbourne.
Current 49er sailors such as Steve Thomas Luke Parkinson, ‘Fang’ Warren and Tom Johnson all started their sailing careers in Flying Ants.
