WILEY ROGERS/JACK PARKIN STEAM THROUGH FLEET AT US YOUTH SAILING CHAMPS
The unstoppable partnership of Wiley Rogers and Jack Parkin won eight of the 14 races to win the US Youth Sailing Championship by a massive 51 point margin.
A strong line-up of 32 teams measured up against Rogers/Parkin, but yet again the pair crunched the opposition and proved their dominance. At last year's Championship, Rogers/Parkin missed out on glory by 1 point, with Will Logue/Bram Brakman taking the title, so were delighted to finally get their names on the exalted trophy. A great outcome after their silver medals at the 2016 420 Worlds and top placed under 18 team.
Giving the boys a run around the race track were plenty of girl partnerships, with Kathryn Hall/Ashton Borcherding finishing 2nd overall and Carmen Cowles/Emma Cowles in third.
Congratulations to Rogers/Parkin and Hall/Borcherding who will be representing the USA at the Youth Sailing World Championships this December in New Zealand.
