RIYC Cadet Member Niall Malone who lives in New Zealand, has sent us an update of his recent competitions. 

He says "We had a good two weeks racing in a very close fleet in Sydney, both the Harken International Youth March Racing Championships and the Musto Youth International had an extremely high level of sailors. Musto was the teams first ever grade one event so it was a great opportunity just to be among such a good fleet and we were able to learn a lot. Unfortunately both events we finished up not getting the overall results we were hoping for but we had some very close races, finishing less than half a boat length behind the world number 2 Nick EJ and taking two wins of the Musto Youth International defending champion Frankie Dair. 

I have entry to the first ever Foiling Match Racing Championships Being held at the RNZYS and I will be representing the RIYC". 

Well done Niall, we wish you all best for 2020!
