Ethan sets the course for more sailing

Ethan O’Brien (Year 10) has been selected as a member of the Victorian Sailing Team for 2016/17 as a result of outstanding achievements in the National Championships, National Youth Championships and State Championships in the 420 Dinghy.

In April, Ethan successfully competed in the Club Marine – Victorian Youth Sailing Championships involving 150 boats and 190 competitors from all over Australia, hosted by the Mornington Yacht Club.  The conditions varied from 0 knots on Saturday to gusts of 23 knots of Sunday testing the skills of all competitors.

Ethan, and his partner James, finished as the second best Victorians and third overall. This was just behind the current Australian Champions and current New Zealand Champions.  This success follows their recent ranking of 3rd in the 420 State titles.
