QLD YOUTHS 2014 AT YEPPOON

by

After 3 years of attending the Yeppoon Youth Championships to fight for the top position, Aidan Gummow, finally succeeded in winning the championship.  Taylor Rogers and Hamish Swain tied with 21 points with Taylor placing 2nd after countback.  11 Optimists attended the event from all over Queensland with most sailors also attending the training camp in the first 3 days with Suzannah Pyatt and Klaus Lorenze.  The week began with strong wind warnings but most of the experienced sailors braved the waves to train with Suzannah who worked them hard, splitting them into teams so she could give them her full attention.  After the exhausting 3 days I think the optimist sailors were very ready to perform in the Youth Championships.  But then the wind dropped exactly as it had the year before.  The organisers still managed to get the racing underway and the regatta finished without any hitches.  Keppel Bay Sailing CLub team did themselves proud once again by offering a regatta with perfect organisation.  The parents enjoyed themselves too seated in the spectator positions in the club which does present the perfect view.
