The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s Youth Sailing Academy fleet of ten Elliott sevens were officially launched today, Thursday 25 July, by Commodore Howard Piggott and Anthony Dunn, Chairman of the Training and Development Committee.

The launch of the new fleet is one of the major milestones in celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the foundation of the Youth Sailing Academy. After an extensive selection process, the Elliott seven was selected as the new training vessel as they have precise symmetrical balance and build weights, strong components, versatility in sailing conditions and racing modes – from symmetric and asymmetric spinnaker sailing, match racing and fleet racing.

The ability for the vessels to be able to accommodate up to five junior sailors when in training mode and sail with up to four senior sailors in match racing conditions, was also paramount in the decision making process.

Commodore Howard Piggott presented each Elliott sponsor with a half model in recognition of their support. 'On behalf of the Club, I would like to thank all sponsors of the Youth Sailing Academy. Your support enables us to continue to deliver excellence in youth sailing. Some of you have been with us from day one and some are new to the family.

'Thank you all for your continued support – you are investing in the future of our great sport of sailing. The Youth Sailing Academy holds a unique place in the CYCA and in the sport of sailing in Australia as it is one of Australia's leading full time Youth Sailing Academies,' Commodore Piggott added.

Chaplain Max Walker from HMAS Watson conducted the official blessing of the fleet.

The boats will be making their regatta debut in the Club Marine NSW Youth Match Racing Championships that will be held from third-fourth August.

A Youth Sailing Academy Alumni function will also be held on Friday 20th September for all past and present YSA students and graduates.

The fleet will once again be in action when the CYCA hosts the Australian Open, Womens’ and Youth Match Racing Championships from 20-29 September. Naming rights sponsorship of these Championships is still available.
