Australian Team for Youth Worlds.
Australia will field a team laced with raw talent, discipline and experience at the Youth Sailing World Championships this year.
The 2018 Australian Youth Team to head to Corpus Christi in the US in July was announced after the Australian Youth Championships.
Among the squad to represent the nation in Texas will be reigning Youth World Champions in the 420, Otto Henry and Rome Featherstone. Other team members who have competed previously at the major event are 29er crew Henry Larkings and Miles Davey, and windsurfers Hailey Lea and Alex Halank. It will be Halank's third Youth World Championship.
Those going to their first Youth Worlds are Maddie O'Shea (Laser Radial girls), Zac Littlewood (Laser Radial boys), Alice Buchanan and Dervla Duggan (29er girls). Will Cooley and Evie Haseldine (Nacra 15) and Matilda Richardson and Lily Richardson (420 girls).
Team selection is subject to Australian Sailing Board approval. Australian Sailing will now undertake a process to select the Team Leader/Coach and coaches. This process is expected to be finalised in February.
