Sail-World.com : Lorenz and Annear's master plan for the International 420 class
Lorenz and Annear's master plan for the International 420 class

'Klaus Lorenz from the Whitsunday Sailing Club.'    Tom Quirk

Talented Whitsunday Sailing Club teenagers Klaus Lorenz and Ollie Annear have a master plan in place to improve their Australian ranking in the International 420 class this weekend.

On Friday they will pack their sails and leave the warm Pioneer Bay sailing environment off Airlie Beach to compete against a strong fleet in the 2012 New South Wales championship on the unfamiliar Georges River course.

They will be racing against some familiar faces who they met during the recent Australian championship regatta on Brisbane’s Moreton Bay.

Competing in the New South Wales title is another step forward for skipper Klaus Lorenz who first became recognised for his dedication to focus his career a beyond being recognised as top club sailor to representing Australia in the Optimist class.

Both he and his school mate Ollie Annear have continued to improve their boat handling skills with extensive training sessions on the warm waters of Pioneer Bay and while they are confident with their collective skill it will be put to the test on the tactically demanding Georges River course this weekend.

Every second of their training program has been applied to improving their crewing combination and developing the important skills of completing the spinnaker sets, gybes and drops with a fast and efficient technique.

However while they are happy with their individual progress of training alone the talented team from the Whitsunday Sailing Club can expect to be presented with a supreme challenge when they tension their against their more experienced crews during the New South Wales championship.

This represents another important example of the support and encouragement which the Whitsunday Sailing Club has invested in their squad of junior sailors.

While Klaus Lorenz and Ollie Annear are regarded as the leading members of the squad their Optimist team led by female skipper and Australian representative Eva Lorenz will line up to contest the Queensland championship on Brisbane’s Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron courses during the May Labour Day holiday weekend.

Meanwhile Eva Lorenz now coached by her proud older brother Klaus promises to be mentally and physically prepared to contest the New Zealand Nationals next month as the Whitsunday Sailing Club officials prepare to host the multiclass regatta over the Easter weekend.
