Extreme Sailing Series - GAC Pindar completes all Aussie crew

GAC Pindar has revealed that 2013 18ft Female Skiff World Champion, Alexandra South, will be their fifth team member for this season’s Extreme Sailing Series.

Sydney-born South is the final member of an all-Aussie crew and will be making her Extreme Sailing Series debut at act one in Singapore, between 20th – 23rd February.

Alex South -  Andrea Francolini  
South, who hails from a sailing family and started sailing at just four years old, is a beneficiary of the ‘fifth sailor’ rule, introduced by series organisers OC Sport in 2012, stipulating that one member of the crew must either be female, under 23, or classified as an amateur by ISAF.

Twenty-year-old South started in a Sabot during her junior years before moving up to the Laser Radial. Most recently she’s excelled in the 18ft Skiff and was crowned Yachting Australia Female Sailor of the Year after she became the 2013 18ft Skiff Female World Champion.

South commented 'GAC Pindar is going into their fourth full season in the Extreme Sailing Series so I’m absolutely delighted to join the team for the tour. I’m excited for the opportunity to show what I can do at this level and can’t wait to go to Singapore to get stuck in.'

South will join new GAC Pindar skipper, Seve Jarvin, who, like South, also started his sailing career as a youngster on Sydney Harbour, before becoming a seven-time 18-foot Skiff World Champion. Supporting them will be Ed Smyth who has competed in three America’s Cups and was part of last year’s Extreme Sailing Series-winning The Wave, Muscat team, Sam Newton (27, Bowman), part of Oracle Team USA’s America’s Cup winning crew and Troy Tindill (30, Mainsheet), who sailed with Artemis in the America’s Cup World Series, all of whom will bring considerable experience.

GAC Pindar Principal, Andrew Pindar says 'The Pindar Sailing programme has a proud record of supporting many incredible female sailors over the years including great names such as Anna Tunnicliffe, Hannah White, Hilary Lister and Emma Richards, so it’s great for us that there is a place on this year’s line-up for Alex.'
