The Sharp Australian Youth Match Racing Championship wrapped up at the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) today in a rainy and shifty decider with multpile lead changes.

Nicole Douglass was live for the final race of the petit finals between the CYCA's Finn Tapper and the Royal Prince Alfred's Niall Powers, and all three of the final matches between the CYCA's two top placed teams, Tom Grimes and James Hodgson.

Tom Grimes and his team of Dante Olivieri, Eric Sparkes, Jess Grimes and Emma Harrison utilised their downwind speed and tactics to come out ahead of fellow CYCA team James Hodgson, Ryan Wilmot, Harry Hall and Charlie Gundy.
