Cruising Yacht Club of Australia Commodore Howard Piggott is pleased to announce that long standing sponsor Harken Australia have extended their sponsorship of the CYCA Youth Sailing Academy (YSA) for a further three years.

Harken Australia’s sponsorship ensures the YSA fleet of new Elliott 7.0m boats will be fitted out with quality deckware. The new fleet of Elliott 7s are currently being built by McConaghy Boats in China. They are due to enter service in time to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the CYCA YSA in September 2013.

Commenting on Harken’s sponsorship, Commodore Piggott said 'It is wonderful to have the support of a great sailing orientated company like Harken. This company was built by sailors, is managed by sailors and it is just wonderful to see Harken Australia supporting young sailors in this way.

Harken’s support in providing our Youth Sailing Academy equipment to world class standards is greatly appreciated. To Garry Lock and his team, we thank you for your past involvement and continuing commitment. Your efforts are appreciated and we look forward to your presence around the club to witness the product of your support.

Harken Australia’s Managing Director Garry Lock commented about the sponsorship 'Harken Australia are proud of our long standing association with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia and the Youth Sailing Academy. We are pleased to be able to continue our sponsorship for another three years and we look forward to the commissioning of the new fleet next year'.

The CYCA’s Youth Sailing Academy has produced some of Australia’s best match racers and keelboat racers, most recently: Olivia Price, Lucinda Whitty, Jay Griffin, Seve Jarvin, Evan Walker and Will Ryan.
