Tasmanian takes U15 crown at Cadet Worlds
Last night our six Tasmanian International Cadet crews competing at the ICC World Championships in Argentina had their final race.
Impulse, sailed by William Cooper and Hugo Allison, were the best placed Tasmanian boats, dispite 3 disqualifications during the regatta. This proved costly as the pair finished 22nd having to carry 1 of the disqualifications (56pts) in their final score. They had a string of top 10 results, which was the most by any boat in the Australian team.
Meltemi, Charlie Goodfellow and Toby Legg, were our next placed boat finishing 25th and taking out the top Under 15 prize. Goodfellow, aged just 13 years, was the youngest skipper in the Australian team, but clearly didn't let that deter him from finishing 3rd Australian. The pair had two top 10 results of 5th and 6th throughout the regatta.
Stolen Pig, Fynn Sprott and Lawrence Jeffs, finished just a few places behind Meltemi in 27th. The pair had a couple of top 15 results before topping of their regatta with a 2nd in the final race.
It's Pink, Issi Declerk and Issy Willcox, finished 32nd. The pair had a 4th place in race one, but were unlucky with a losing a protest and having to retire from the final race.
Godscend, Lily and Anabelle Zeeman, finished 37th just infront of their brothers. The pair had two mid-teen finishes throughout the regatta.
Drop Bears, Charlie and William Zeeman, finished 38th and won the trophy for most improved throughout the regatta. The pair remained very consistant in their results and finished the regatta with a top 20 finish.
