Harken Int Youth MR Championships - Prize Money Announced

2016 Harken International Youth Match Racing Championships - Prize Money Announced 

Newport's Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club will again welcome top international youth sailors to its doors for the 24th HARKEN International Youth Match Racing Championship on Pittwater starting Wednesday 16 through to Sunday 20 November.

An exciting new addition to the event Harken is offering a prize purse of $2000 to support and  grow youth match racing in Australia.  Harken Australia’s Managing Director, Grant Pellew, is excited with the introduction of prize money to this well-established international event.

“To not only support the longest standing youth match racing event in Australia, but to now provide a cash prize for this event is a good reflection on how match racing is growing in Australia, and such a positive move forward for our upcoming youth sailors.” Said Grant Pellew.

Racing in the club’s fleet of identical Elliot 7 keelboats, 12 teams from the United States of America,  Netherlands, New Zealand & Australia will be competing for the $2000 of prize money along with being named on the HARKEN International Youth Match Racing Champion honour board alongside the likes of 2x America’s Cup winning skipper, James Spithill.

With a field of talented sailors all eyes will be on event veteran, George Anyon from the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. Coming into this event, George is the highest ranked international skipper, finished runner up in last year’s HARKEN and being his third event as skipper he will be tipped to take out the event.

However, this year he is up against strong international competition with the 12 teams & over 54 competitors. Confirmed skippers are:

·         RNZYS - Auckland, NZ– George Anyon - 32

·         RFBYC -  Perth, AUSTRALIA– Will Boulden – 46

·         DFYC - NETHERLANDS – Jelmer van Beek - 82

·         RPAYC - Sydney, AUSTRALIA – Malcolm Parker – 90

·         RNZYS - Auckland, NZ – Mathew Hughes – 130

·         RPNYC - Wellington, NZ – Will Eastman – 154

·         CYCA - Sydney, AUSTRALIA – Tom Grimes - 180

·         RPNYC  - Wellington, NZ – Oakley Marsh - 192

·         RPAYC - Sydney, AUSTRALIA – Sarah Parker - 197

·         BYC - California, USA – Porter Killian - 316

·         RSYS - Sydney, AUSTRALIA – Nicholas Rozenauers - 419

·         DWS – Darwin, AUSTRALIA – John Lynch - NR

The 2016 HARKEN will have an extensive media coverage which can be found via the website and social media pages.
