Pictures and article from: South African Sailing (SAS)

Sailing Team Izivungu competing in the Southern Charter Youth Nationals have been acquitting themselves very well thus far in this prestigious National Championship sailing event. In the first four races of the regatta they had already notched-up a very respectable second place as well as two thirds. Competition is tight in the international 420 class as the Southern Charter Youth Nationals weighs into the scoring towards selection for representing South Africa in future world championships sailing events.

Team Izivungu is represented by Loyiso Jamda of Red Hill near Simonstown and Simthembile Mbana of Masiphumalele near Noordhoek.

 

Altogether there are 210 yachts competing in the Southern Charter Youth Nationals spanning multiple dinghy and multi-hull classes.

 

Weather conditions started off light at the beginning of the regatta; however, storm conditions have come through and the strong winds accompanied by gusts have been proving both challenging and testing for one and all. The championship is scheduled to take place throughout the week and comes to a conclusion on Saturday on Stofvlei in Hermanus.
