SPRINGSAIL IN AUSTRALIA
As the southern hemisphere racing season gets into full swing, SpringSail hosted at Royal Geelong Sailing Club, just south of Melbourne, Australia, hosted a 2-day race series followed by 2 days of coaching from 17-20 September.
In such a country as vast as Australiathere are numerous state and district events, with SpringSail targeted at sailors from the Victoria region. Take a look at the upcoming Australian 420 Class Event Calendar.
Eleven 420 teams faced off in a seven-race series. Jack Felsenthal/Jasper Pluim threw down their cards by winning the opening race, before going on to secure a string of top four finishes to win by 7 points. Back in Australia after some time spent in Europe on the international circuit earlier this year, the partnership finished 100th at the 420 Worlds.
Second to William Pratt/Charlie Dixon, and third to Laura Harding/Ella Grimshaw. Harding/Grimshaw represented Australia at this year’s 420 Worlds in Italy finishing 49th in the 84 boat Ladies fleet.
