Nespresso National Youth Training Week 5 – 11th December 2016

4 of our Sailors headed off on Monday to the Nespresso National Youth Training Week at Kawau. Brittany Clark, Matt Brewer, Jonathan Turnbull, and Sam Liddell are all representing GBC up against 6 other teams during the week.

The National Youth Training Week was established in 1989. Each year Yacht Clubs from around New Zealand are invited to send a four person youth crew to share in the intensive sailing experience synonymous with our world-renowned RNZYS Lion Foundation Youth Training Programme. The week of training gives young sailors the opportunity to receive intensive theoretical and practical instruction in the various aspects of competitive keelboat racing in a disciplined environment.

Yachts: The 10 Elliott 7m training boats owned by the RNZYS Lion Foundation Youth Training Programme are used for the training week.
