Australian Schools Team Racing Championship 2011, hosted by South of Perth Yacht Club on the Swan River, is being held from Thursday July 7 to Sunday July 10.

South Australian schools St Michael’s College and St Joseph’s College have sailed off for the final of the Championship, with St Michael’s winning 3-2.

The final on Sunday climaxed three days of intense racing between some of the best young sailors in the nation, competing under the complex rules of teams racing in Pacer dinghies.

In total 196 races were conducted under the Swiss League system which involved each team sailing 28 races,

St Michael’s was third in overall standings at the end of the qualifying series between the 14 school teams from around Australia but came through the semi-finals with two convincing 2-0 victories, clinching the championship in a five race final.

St Joseph’s had topped the qualifying scores with 20 wins, followed by Western Australia’s Shenton College with 18 wins, St Michael’s College (SA) with 17 and Christ Church Grammar (WA) with 16 wins.

In the three semi-finals allowed under the team racing rules, St Michael’s beat Christ Church Grammar 2-0 and Shenton College 2-0, while St Joseph’s College beat Shenton College 2-0, leaving the two Adelaide schools to fight out the final.

The winning St Michael’s College team comprised Benjamin Knoop, Cameron Philcox, Luke Butcher, Henry Leitner, Jordan Pisani and Jackson Knoop. Sailing for St Joseph’s were Ryan Kelly, Louise Stephens, Ashleigh Dyer, Greta Garnaut, Amy Perin, Kelsey Allen and Mark Barwick.
