What a fantastic, one of kind, community event for the best Women sailors of WA!
For the 5th year running, HYC has entered a team of women to put their best foot forward to compete in this highly competitive WSKC event.
The event involves 5 races in the same windward/leeward racing format as the North Coast Series. This year there were 6 teams (river & ocean clubs). (www.swanriversailing.com)
Our 2019 Team comprised of sailors from Dinghy, Keelboat, and for the first time a youth member! Chelsea Bradford, 18 years old joined and owned the position of helm!
This year, enthusiasm and interest grew amongst the community of women at HYC who wanted to take part. The team continue to share their experiences and encourage all “Sailing Sisters” at HYC to give it a go!
Well done to the 2019 WSKC team who represented HYC, with heart and soul, and as a team, advanced together to give it our best shot!
I share post event feedback to the HYC team from SRS Executive Officer-event organiser, Andy Feathers ….
“I personally want to thank you for your long term commitment to this event and the attitude you all bring. This year, like last year, significant training effort went in and I am gutted for you all that you didn’t get the reward of the result you wanted.
Please reflect that after the top mark rounding of the last race this year your team was holding a third place overall for the event.”
You win some, you learn some!
Thank you to our HYC Flag Officers, Management, Keelboat Captain & members, and to our Coach, Ian Conboy, who provided endless hours of on-water coaching, classroom sessions, and RIB support for the training and event.
Lastly, the team are very proud to have displayed our HYC Women on Water talents, by being in the arena and daring to be great!
Next year? Watch this space?
