The WA Tour and Development Program

Back again for the second year running, the Warren Jones Foundation is once again supporting the WA Tour and Development Program. The WA Tour will see a series of three-match racing events, targeted to youth sailors, sailed over January and February in Western Australia. The WA Tour is structured as a short series with aggregated scoring, overall prize money and handicaps to encourage fierce competition, dedication, hard work and skill development for local youth sailors during this second, irregular Perth summer. Additional information and applications will open in late October 2021.

Tour events in 2022

Featuring in the 3-event series in 2022, will be Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club's JESS Match Cup followed by the Colin Mullins Youth Regatta, hosted by Royal Perth Yacht Club and wrapping up with the Perth Youth Cup, supported by the Warren Jones Foundation, hosted by Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club. Results from these events will be aggregated with overall prize money awarded upon the conclusion of the final event on Friday, 11th February 2022 at the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club.

The 2022 Perth Youth Cup

Although the hope and plan are to run the Warren Jones International Youth Regatta in 2022, the realistic outcome will be to run a state and/or national regatta in its' place again this year. The Warren Jones Foundation have thrown their full support behind the project again in 2022, as well and supporting the resurgence of the ever-popular Warren Jones Gala Luncheon, to be held on the final day of racing of the Perth Youth Cup on Friday, 11th February 2022.

Date change - dates have moved back by one week

Unfortunately due to a venue availability issue, the Warren Jones event in 2022 has needed to be pushed back by one week and will now be held on Tuesday 8th - Friday 11th February 2022 instead of the original dates of 31 January to 04 February. In order to avoid a direct clash in dates, the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron has provided sincere, next-level support and has also moved their Hardy Cup back one week in 2022 to 13-17 February. We are so grateful and thankful to the team at the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, especially the efforts by Commodore Christian Brook and Rear Commodore Karen Gojnich, for their support and assistance with this matter. The fact that our organisations can work together for the greater good of match racing and international youth sailing events in our country is something we are sincerely proud of. Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron will officially announce the date change of the 2022 Hardy Cup
in the coming days.
