London Olympics 2012 Sailing Competition - The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club member Nina Curtis is competing in the Women’s Match Racing with Olivia Price and Lucinda Whitty, as part of the Australian sailing team in Weymouth.

Tonight they race in the semi finals against Finland to decide what colour medal they will race for tomorrow evening. The RPAYC will be televising the medal races for members and guests live on the big screen at the club tomorrow evening (Saturday 11 August) from 9pm.

The women’s match racing team successfully won all 11 matches in the round robin to advance to the quarter finals as the number one seed. They defeated the Dutch team (3-1) in the quarter finals to advance through to the semi-finals.

Nina is the daughter of Rob Curtis, the Commodore of the RPAYC who is currently in Weymouth to support Nina.

A big crowd of enthusiastic supporters will assemble tomorrow evening to watch the women’s finals including six time Olympian Colin Beashel OAM, who won Bronze in the Star class at the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games and carried the Australian Olympic Team flag at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.

RPAYC club coach Tom Spithill, close friend of Nina’s and brother of James Spithill, the defending America’s Cup skipper and champion match racer, will be on hand to conduct some light commentary and help out with match racing questions.

The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club (RPAYC) has had a representative in sailing at every Olympic Games since 1964 except in 1980 when the sailing team withdrew from the Moscow games.

Media are welcome to attend the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club on Saturday evening and talk to supporters gathered to watch Nina, Olivia and Lucinda race:
