Juniors to take the helm
ONE of the Whitsunday Sailing Club’s most interesting series will kick off at this Saturday, November 1.
The Embroidery Plus Junior Skippers Series is a special series giving junior sailors the opportunity to take the helm of larger keelboats.
Supported by their crew, each junior sailor helms their respective yacht to complete in two bay races held over the weekend, with the best sailor, taking home the win.
Whitsunday Sailing Club President and Race Officer, Jim Hayes, said the Embroidery Plus Junior Skippers Series was a great chance for juniors to try out large keelboat sailing and test their skills on the water.
