Teenage Whitsunday Sailing Club dinghy skipper Klaus Lorenz again expressed his skill to show he will again be knocking on the door for selection in the Australian World Youth Sailing team in 2014.

Klaus and his new crew mate James Scott handed this notice to Australia’s best 420 Dinghy crews when they finished fourth overall in this month’s OAMPS Insurance Brokers World championship selection trials hosted by the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania on the windy River Derwent.

The talented West Australian crew of Lachlan Gilmour and Thomas Blaauw proved they deserved the honour to represent Australia at the 2013 World Youth championship in Cyprus later this year when they piloted Novo Rapid to an impressive performance winning five of the eight selection races including a Black Flag disqualification in race 1.

Both Lachlan Gilmour and Thomas Blaauw who have been sailing together for some time showed the benefit in gauging their technique and boat speed from racing against a high standard club fleet in Perth.

They were in a class of their own while the self taught Klaus Lorenz and James Scott overcame the important lack of big fleet racing finished the eight race championship with a 6-4-4-2-4-3-3-6 score card with their dinghy Rock Star.

Klaus a member of Yachting Queensland development team has progressively developed his career from racing and training alone on the warm tropical waters of Pioneer Bay to earn the respect from his fellow 420 dinghy class rivals.

He has shown the class to overcome the added expense of owning two 420 dinghies one for training on his home club course off Airlie Beach while his National championship boat is based 1150 kilometres away in Brisbane and promises to remain as a determined challenger when the sails are tensioned for the 2014 World Youth selection trials .

However Klaus Lorenz is proud to call Airlie Beach home and has shown his personal dedication and skill to win a bronze medal in the Australian Optimist class before stepping into the highly competitive 420 Olympic training class where is career focus and ambition remains with the distinction of becoming the first North Queensland sailor to win selection in the Australian Youth team.
