Jack
Furey and his skipper Joel Aulich competed in the Yachting Victoria 2008
Youth & Junior Championships at Chelsea Yacht Club last weekend.
They
raced in Division 4, the Junior 2-Hander division (2 man boats) and won
their event comfortably. Six races were sailed with one allowed to be
discarded. They won all five of the races they counted and in doing so
comfortably beat the current Victorian State champion in their International
Cadet class. They were very pleased to be the top performing (ie lowest
points scored) yacht in the entire regatta. They showed pleasing improvement
following the preceding weekend’s Coaching Clinic with Tasmanian
Coach and former World International Cadet Champion, Paul Burnell.
Following
the racing, Jack and Joel were presented with their trophies by current
and former (2004) Olympic Sailor, Sarah Blanck.
They
are progressing very nicely towards their goal of performing well for
Australia at the International Cadet World Championships in Medemblik,
The Netherlands, in July / August 2008.
