Durban youngsters flew the Point Yacht Club burgee with pride over the long weekend, with a number of sailors taking top spots at the combined event of the KZN Inter-Schools Regatta and the KZN Youth Regional Championships held at Henley Midmar Yacht Club.


The main class, the hardy Optimists had 19 boats competing with a handful of upcountry sailors taking the long weekend gap to join in the event. Leading the fleet was Cape Town’s Matt Ashwell from Zeekoe Vlei Yacht Club. Second place was Kegan Nel sailing for Victoria Lake Club in Germiston. Concluding the podium position, claiming third place was Hillcrest Primary School’s Iain Bowman. Up-and-coming Bowman who
