RPAYC prepped and ready for the 2017 Nespresso International

Two teams will represent the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club this week at the Nespresso Youth International Match Racing Regatta hosted by the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron in Auckland.

There will be sibling rivalry amongst the two team with Malcolm and Sarah Parker as the two skippers for RPAYC.

Sarah has already enjoyed success with her all female team combination placing 3rd in the Harken International Youth Match Racing Regatta. "Where the girls may struggle to match some of the bigger boys in the strength department, they certainly make up for it in their timing and technique" commented Club Coach Tom Spithill.

Malcolm will be sailing in a mixed team, the same team he sailed with when he came in runner up in the Harken Youth Match Racing Championships in November 2016.

"Since the Harken, we haven't managed to have too many opportunities to sail together, however individually we have all been doing lots of sailing in a wide range of boats. Etchells, M32 Catamarans, Melges 24s, Farr 40s, c&c 30 and Mc 38s. We have had the privilege of sailing with some pretty talented sailors from the RPAYC and elsewhere , and we are all hoping to now come and use some of our new found skills and knowledge to our advantage this week" commented an excited Malcolm Parker.

A strong line up of 14 teams including internationals from New Caledonia and Australia should see some great racing over the next few days in the Squadron's fleet of Elliott 7s
