World Team Racing Championship Selections
Two RYCT teams have been offered places at the World Team Racing Championship to be conducted at Rutland Water, GBR later this year.
The teams were selected following a seven-team regatta conducted by the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron last weekend on behalf of the Australian Team Sailing Association. Teams from Hutchins and Friends’ schools competed for the Youth spot with Hutchins shading their local rivals at the event. Both schools, represented by RYCT OTB and SBSC sailors, are considering offers to attend the World Championship.
