Junior Sailing - Alive and well!

MMYC Junior sailing
 
zac heyes 2015   holly shepherd 

During the month of May two of MMYC junior sailors Zac Heyes and Holly Shepherd competed in the open fleet at the Icicles regatta held at Royal Brighton Yacht club, Holly was only able to sail on one weekend of the regatta as the Shepherds had a family holiday doing a cruise on the south pacific!
Of the five weekends of May two were blown out with 30 – 40 knots and the other three were sailed in perfect autumn weather with 5 to 10 knot winds.
After 10 races in a very competitive fleet of sailors from around the bay, Zac Heyes came out on top and won the open fleet by one point with 22 points. Holly finished down the order as she missed 7 out of the 10 races with her trip away and then missing due to weather!
Zac Heyes also has had some great news on the back of some impressive sailing and great results over the sailing season, he has been invited into the Victorian Opti State Squad (VOSS) he is one of twelve sailors selected each year and now will be attending sailing camps throughout the year with specialty coaching and be part of the team at regattas throughout the year! WELL DONE ZAC
We are putting together the sailing program for the upcoming season for our junior sailing team, green fleet and open fleet, we are thinking of running the racing separate to the main fleet on Sunday mornings with a 10.30am start time. We will be looking for Parents to help with running the racing and helping out! We need to step the junior sailing up a level this year and get the kids motivated to sail each week! I think we have started a great junior sailing team and I am looking forward to the upcoming season.
