Dear Members and Friends,

Our Bryan Carstens is coming 17th out of 49! Well done! Keep it up …
We’re behind you all the way!
470 World Championships – Thessaloniki, Greece
The 470 Pre-Worlds event is wrapping up, and the new South African 470 men’s team of Asenathi Jim and Sibu Sizatu continue to sail well – maintaining their 3rd place overall after 6 races.
Their results are: 4; 2; 10; 12; 10; 8. These young guys, coached by Roger Hudson, have had some really good grounding in the pre-worlds, being their first ever international event as a sailing combination, and will take the experience gained into the World Championships.
