Sydney is proceeding to host the Harken international Youth match racing competition this year. The weather conditions in the northern side of Sydney have actually brought in bad vibes to the organizers. The match racing is considered to be one of the hardest and most competitive events in sailing, where boats rise up in pairs trying to out-maneuver, force penalties on each other and gain points also staying away from penalties themselves.
$1,000 awaits the winner sponsored by Harken Australia. This year, they are possibly hosting some of the finest sailors in the world along with their young talents among which are two women. Sailors like James Hodgson who is rated 35th in the world and also Jordan Stevenson who is rated 68th in the world is no less excited about how those fresh fins are going to exhibit their sailing instincts against their young guns. Grant Pellew, managing director of Harken is supposed to attend the event but still has sent his message to be read out to the assembled competitors. The club is preparing best gears available to tackle the uncertain westerlies on Pittwater and the ‘Gully breeze’.
