Junior J22 Nationals – TYC – 16th – 19th June 2016

J22 YOUTHA highlight of the weekend was the success of the Royal Natal Yacht Club junior J22 team consisting of members Michaela Robinson (16)(skipper), Chad Stevenson (16)and Benji Daniel (15) who won the J22 Junior Championships sailed in Gauteng and sailing on the J22 Hot Salsa. Ryan Robinson took on the role of Manager, making sure everything went smoothly, including making sure his team were dropped off at the airport after sailing, the club extends their thanks and appreciation to him for his assistance. The attached results show what wonderful consistency this young team showed, achieving 5 firsts on Saturday was an amazing achievement in itself.

When this campaign first started a request was put out to certain members to consider assisting with a sponsorship towards the flights etc, every single member approached, responded immediately offering their assistance, this shows the wonderful and generous spirit that exists within our club.
Together with the money received from TYC as a travel allowance, it meant that this campaign was totally covered by sponsorship from the members of RNYC. A huge thank you to these members on behalf of the team.

The Royal Natal Yacht Club is enormously proud of this talented and
youthful team who represent the future of our Club.
