Over the recent October long weekend, youth sailors from around Australia contested the NSW Youth Sailing Championships on Botany Bay.
244 boats and many of Australia’s top youth sailors travelled to Georges River Sailing Club Botany Bay for this annual regatta.
Racing was held over 3 days in variable weather conditions ranging from light to very strong winds – A real test for sailors of all levels.
It was a good weekend for Waverley’s Will Cooley, placing 2nd in the highly competitive Laser 4.7 fleet.
Recently selected for the NSW Youth Sailing Team, it was a solid result for Will in his first try out as part of the NSW Youth Team.
Will has a string of regattas coming up as he prepares for the National Championships and Australian Youth Championships in Adelaide over the New Year break.
