Club Member Nathan Bryant and Georgia Payne from Mandurah South of Perth Yacht Club, have been over in Marseille, France competing in the Nacra 15 Worlds followed by the first Nacra 15 foiling regatta in the world!
The team worked hard and took off at the start of the regatta showing that their many hours of training in the wind and heavy sea states was paying off. They were up at the top of this big fleet of over 80 Nacra’s – the biggest event yet in this class.
The regatta was challenging, not just by the numbers on the water but the changing winds and seas states. In heavy seas they held their own but were challenged when the regatta turned into a very light and shifty race course. The team learnt some tough lessons and finished an amazing 10th overall. They then backed this up with a 5th in the foiling worlds. They are on their way home and ready to work hard for the upcoming summer series where they will compete for the 2020 Youth worlds spot.
