Will Drew (Mercy, Year 9) has had a busy sailing summer and as a result has made the Australian Team, and will travel to Lake Garda in Italy late July for the World Cup.
In terms of Open Bic sailing, he won the overall WA State Championship mid December. He then went to the National Titles in Adelaide over the New Year and came third overall, winning two of the races.
On his return to WA, Will was asked to join a team from the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron in the week long Warren Jones International Youth Regatta on the Swan River. They made the finals, unexpectedly and were eliminated by the eventual winner. Will was on board with an Olympian and several young sailors who are in the America’s Cup development squad.
