Further to Wednesday’s Monthly newsletter please note Sarah Jane Deary’s Youth Worlds result is our best result in recent history. We must not forget Robyn Sadler (nee Keen)’s great success winning a Bronze in the Laser Radial Youth Worlds in Rhode Island in 1996. Also to be celebrated is Calene Loubser’s 4th in the Buzios Youth Worlds in 2011 crewing on a Hobie 16 with Matt Whitehead. Calene was also 8th the year before, again crewing with Matt, in Turkey. And then there was also Dale Rae and Dominique Provoyeur sailing a Laser 2 together. They were 11th in Lake Garda in 1993 and 6th in Marathon, Greece, in 1994.
And at the pinnacle of sailing achievement we have our female Olympians- Dominque Provoyeur, Kim Rew and Penny Alison sailed the Yingling in Qingdao in 2008.
We salute all of these great sailors as we begin the Women’s Month celebrations this August.
Thank you to our readers for their quick engagement in amplifying the record
