International 420 and 470 Junior European Championships were recently held in Nieuwpoort, Belgium. Australian youth sailors Angus Galloway and Alex Gough have won the 420 Juniors capping off a great European season for the Queensland based pair.

The win for Galloway and Gough follows their Bronze medal at the 2011 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship in Croatia last month and their earlier win at Kieler Woche in Germany.

The pair was at the head of the fleet in Nieuwpoort for the entire regatta, finishing in the top 10 in all but one race, picking up four race wins along the way.

The 420 Junior European Championships featured 101 crews from 21 nations with close racing throughout the fleets across all 10 races on the North Sea.

Galloway and Gough went into the final race in the light conditions just one point ahead of French crew Guillaume Pirouelle and Valentin Sipan with the Australians keeping a close eye on their competition throughout the race and bringing home the Gold medal.

Fellow Australians Alec Bailey and Douglas Shephard finished 26th with three top four finishes during the regatta.

Meanwhile Australian crews also had strong results at the 470 Junior European Championships being held at the same venue.

Australian Sailing Squad members Matthew and Robert Crawford ended the regatta fourth overall, just six points off the podium following a highly competitive week of racing.

The Crawford brothers were in the mix all regatta, consistently finishing at the front of the fleet in the challenging conditions.

Sasha Ryan and Squad member Chelsea Hall finished fifth in the women’s class, with the pair in the middle of a tight group just outside the medals.

The leading Australian crews competing at the 420 and 470 Junior European Championships have received support from Yachting Australia’s High Performance Program, either as part of the Australian Sailing Squad and or the Youth Bridging Program.
