Sail Sydney displays the talent and growth of sailors from RPAYC

More than 300 competitors are taking part in this year’s Sail Sydney Regatta. As always, RPAYC is well represented in this international regattas with Olympic Medalists, Americas Cup sailors and World Champions spread amongst all the classes.
For the first half of the regatta 11th -14th December, the Olympic classes are out on the water battling for their country’s selection in the following classes. Finn, Laser Radial, Laser Standard, Nacra 17, 49er, 49er FX and 470.

Club member Jason Waterhouse and Lisa Darmanin, showed yet another dominate performance in the foiling Nacra 17 class, as they campaign to go one better from their Silver medal performance in Rio.
Josh Dawson and Chris Charlwood just missed the podium, coming away with a respectable 4th place in the 470 fleet. Fellow Aussies Matt Belcher and Will Ryan took the win with the perfect score card of 8 wins from 8 races.

RPAYC’s dynamic duo of Natasha Bryant and Annie Wilmot continue to impress their much older rivals in the 49erFX class placing 5th.
In the Laser Radial Class, RPAYC had strong representation with Nathan Bryant placing 10, Jarrah Shepard in 12th, Bostin Cortis 17th and Cam Whiteside in 21st overall.

The 49er Class so some fast and furious racing on busy Sydney Harbour. The new combination of Jim Colley and Simon Hoffman is showing growth, with the duo placing 10th overall. Also flying the burgee was Xavier Winston Smith and Shaun Connor placing 12th.

Commenting on the weeks racing Jason Waterhouse had this to say about the week and sailing the Nacra 17 class: “To find the limit you’ve got to push the limit and we did that a bit this week,” 
“We had a capsize in the last race yesterday as well [as today]. We’re just trying to get the 100 per cent fly time. I’m sure there will be plenty more.”

The non-Olympic classes will now participate over the 15th-17th where the RPAYC will once again have a strong representation of club sailors sailing in their respective classes. One of the largest and most completive fleets in the regatta is the Optimist Class, where RPAYC will be well represented
