Final results from Australian Youth Championship

by Lara Watts on 10 Jan 2008
The final day of racing at the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Championship 2008 was abandoned today due to lack of wind. Performances from nine races completed over the last three days have made up the final results.

Jason Waterhouse won the Hobie 16 class with his cousin Lisa Darmanin. He commented 'Lisa and I have been training together for the last three months as my usual crew member, Michael McCormick is now too old to compete in this event.

'It’s funny because Lisa and I usually compete against each other so it’s been good to sail together and walk away with a win at this regatta. We sailed well but made some mistakes which we will both learn from.

'The best thing about the Australian Youth Champs is that it’s a social event with lots of kids the same age as us as well as being a serious sailing regatta with international competitors'.

In the Bic Techno 293 class Tom England from Victoria won the Gold medal. He said 'I started off sailing in Minnows, then Lasers and then the RS:X class.

'I have only been sailing the Bic Techno 293 class for a short time and it’s a lot easier to handle and more user friendly than the RS:X.

'The conditions for my class really need around 20 knots to be great and it only averaged around 15 knots for most the regatta.

'I am stoked to have won the Gold medal in the class'.

For the first time the Bic Techno 293 boards were contested in this regatta. Yachting Australia CEO, Phil Jones said 'Windsurfing remains an attractive option for young sailors. The Bic Techno 293 offers a low cost opportunity for those wanting to compete at national level.

'We were delighted with the numbers competing in the first event and look forward to very significant growth in the next twelve months.

'Mandurah (WA) will offer perfect conditions for those competing in this exciting class at the event in 2009'.

New South Wales won the inaugural ‘State Cup’ as they were the best performing Australian state followed by Victoria in second place and Western Australia in third place.

The Presentation Ceremony will be held tonight at the Frankston Art Centre where the OAMPS Insurance Brokers Australian Youth Team 2008 will be announced. The Team will then go on to compete at the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship to be held in Aarhus, Denmark from 10th – 19th July, 2008. The Team will also be defending the Volvo Nations Trophy after being crowned the most successful nation at the same event held in Canada in July this year.
