Four of the Algoa Bay Yacht Club youth sailors competed in the J22 Youth Keelboat Champs, at Hartebeespoort Dam (TYC) this past week. Our Youth Team represented ABYC particularly well by achieving 3rd place overall, in a very competitive fleet of eleven J22 racers. Their Bronze Medal was determined in last (10th) race, when they sailed to a very convincing 1st place over the 2nd and 4th placed teams. Overall, RNYC and DAC took 1st and 2nd places respectively, with 4th placed PYC close behind ABYC. Well done to the team of Jordan van Zyl, Chad Bilsbury, Jenna Bailes & Bronwyn . . .
Two yachts from ABYC are taking part in the 2016 Vasco Da Gama Ocean Race from Durban to Port Elizabeth - Nemesis and Wallbanger. The start is at 12:30 on Saturday 23 April and once again GIMCO have sponsored trackers to allow you to follow the action as we charge down the coast with the promise . . .
