Yachting NSW Youth Championships Mainsheet Media
The October long weekend will once again see one of the largest youth sailing regattas held in Australia when Georges River 16ft Sailing Club hosts the Yachting NSW Youth Championships 2013.

From fifth to seventh October more than 200 crews will contest the regatta on the waters of Botany Bay. This year will see some outstanding sailors return as well as new talent eager to compete and maybe even set their sights on future Olympic glory.

Crews from all over NSW and Australia have entered and there is sure to be some state-against-state action as reputations are made and defended.

Entries are still coming in and Yachting NSW has waived the late entry fee. Classes include 29er, 420, Flying 11, Laser 4.7, Laser Radial, Optimist and Sabot.

The weekend will have something for the families as well as they come along to support the young sailors. With great food and drinks on hand, parents and supporters of the sailors can follow the racing from the race trackers that will be placed on a number of classes each day.


Supporters are encouraged to volunteer to help out. It only takes a minute online on the Youth Championships website. Results will also be posted on the Youth Championships website or you can also follow the action online through facebook and twitter.

Yachting NSW, the sailors and their families are grateful for the support of the industry and the sailing community as NSW Maritime, Steve Jarvin Motors, Nautilus Insurance, Gill Australia, and Marine Rescue to name just a few, line up to ensure that sailing receives the recognition it deserves.

Yachting NSW is a not for profit organisation responsible for the administration, promotion and advancement of the sport of sailing at all levels throughout Yatching NSW Championship Website
