Where there’s a Will there’s a way
a great couple of weeks is has been for Hobart sailor Will Sargent, both interstate and overseas.
Will and his crews from the Friends’ School and the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania competed in the Interdominion Schools Team Racing Championships in New Zealand, followed by the Australian Schools and Open Youth Match Racing Championships in Sydney.
With Will on the helm in each series, they finished a close second overall in the Interdominion, sailing 420s, then flew to Sydney to win the Australian Schools Match Racing in a hard-fought series last weekend.
On Monday they lined up again for the Open Youth Match Racing against some very experienced under-23 match racing skippers and crews, sailing Elliot 7s, the crew showing adaptability to the major change of boats.
