Where there’s a Will there’s a way

Mercury (Hobart) - - BOATING -

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.
