A very well deserved award!

Announcing the winner of the 2020 NSW/ACT Youth Sailor of the Year Award – Daniel Links from
After dominating the Optimist class in Australia for a number of years, Daniel managed to finish off his time in the class with a fantastic win in the Dutch Youth regatta against 350 boats. This was an exceptional performance in a mix of conditions and the first time an Australian had ever won a large international Optimist regatta. Daniel then went to Antigua in July 19 for the Optimist Worlds. In tough windy conditions not suitable to his weight Daniel finished a very strong 16th against a very tough field.
This Worlds was the largest ever with over 65 countries represented. 16th was the 2nd best result ever by an Australian at an Optimist Worlds. After the Worlds Daniel progressed to a 420 and after only 5 months in the class managed to win the Australian championships in Mornington in Jan 2020. Daniel and Jack Ferguson won 7 of the 12 races and won with a race to spare against a strong Melbourne contingent on their local waters.
