Sail-World.com : Yachting New South Wales’ Emerging Talent Squad enjoy the podium

Yachting New South Wales’ Emerging Talent Squad enjoy the podium

The Yachting NSW Emerging Talent Squad well and truly emerged last week bringing home the Champion State Trophy after a dominating round of results at the Queensland Youth Week sailing regatta.

The squad is made up of athletes selected from designated junior and youth classes who participate in the program designed to develop skills and potentially qualify them for a New South Wales Institute of Sport scholarship. Coaching by staff from the institute ensures high quality with over 70 athletes involved each year supported by 10 coaches.


The Queensland Youth Week is run over four days hosted by the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron. The week is the biggest annual event for the squadron with over 230 entries across ten classes. Youth sailors from across Australia travel to the event to enjoy the sailing and fly their state colours. The weather over the four day event was varied and challenged the squad, though the results showed they were more than up to the task.

Harry Price and Nathan Edwards took out first overall in the 29ers, thankfully without their boat Crunchie, living up to its name. Sam Treharne took out first overall in the Bic Techno division after a first in every race, with James Brewer and Dylan Passmore duplicating his record in the 420 class on Planit. Kurt Hansen and Lindsay Pike brought Oscar in for a first overall in the Flying Elevens, and Nicholas Conner secured second overall on his Laser 4.7. Matthew Lang took things literally taking out first overall in the Sabots on Slippery Little Sucker.

‘The ETS program has allowed Yachting NSW to support a large number of the best youth sailors from our state and their performance at the Queensland Youth Week Regatta is a clear indicator that this program is lifting their standard. This has been a very strong showing for NSW sailors who together with their coaches are building toward the Australian Youth Championship next January.’ Rob Brewer, Emerging Talent Squad 420 Coach and Yachting NSW Vice President.

The next challenge for the Yachting NSW Emerging Talent Squad is the NSW Youth Championship in October, followed by class state championships, class Australian championships, and the Australian Youth Championships back at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron in January 2012.

Sam Treharne takes first overall in the Bic Techno class. -  David Price
