Youth Match Racing Worlds Trials name

RNZYS held a trials series over 7-8 April to select a team for the World Match Racing champs in Italy in July.  Past member Nick Egnot Johnson with his crew of Zac Merton and Sam Barnett won, from another MBSC member James Wilson. James had won the round robin 8-0, but Nick came through to win the final 3-2 against James.

Nick had onboard with him MBSC Opti sailor Lucas Day who had an awesome experience. Lucas was kept busy running the pit and calling time. Nick was stoked with the job he did.
