The grade 2 event fielded the who's who of youth match racing, with top ranked professional sailors in contention. Teams came from various parts of Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Sweden, The Netherlands, Japan, and the USA. DRYC sailors battled various conditions, with breeze ranging from five to twenty-five knots on the challenging chop and wind shifts of Sydney Harbor. The DRYC team finished tenth out of fifteen in a challenging international field.
This was a major step for the DRYC Junior Sailing Program. After promising showings at match race events such as the Governor's Cup and Ficker Cup, taking strides in the international youth match racing circuit shows the commitment and depth of the DRYC team. The Club is looking forward to more international events in the future.
