GSC Optimist Sailor Bridget Conrad Competes Strongly
A big congratulations to Bridget Conrad, who recently competed in the Stack New Zealand Winter Championships, held out of Murray’s Bay Sailing Club NZ in the Optimist class in early October.
After 9 races Bridget came away 6th overall and top female team, in a fleet of 55 boats.
Australian Optimist Sailing Team Facebook page recently posted ‘The last day finished on a high with the girls all moving up the scoreboard. The entire team showed significant improvement understanding and executing holding lanes off the start line, importance of speed and learning to sail in much shiftier conditions to what they are used to back home’.
Congratulations Bridget! We look forward to watching your progress in the class throughout the coming months. Bridget trains hard regularly at GSC and is an up and coming GSC Instructor.
