Last minute entries see sailing heavyweights rush to get their expressions in for the HARKEN Open Championship

HARKEN Open Championship 2020

Last minute entries see sailing heavyweights rush to get their expressions of interest in for the Harken Open Championship 20-22 November, 2020.

David Chapman and his teams from the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron are arguably one of the strongest teams to date that have expressed interest in entering this new and exciting event, that sees both fleet and match racing to determine the overall winner.

David “Chappo”, has made a big name for himself in the sailing scene from his early days sailing in the Harken Youth Match Racing Championship.

Since then Chappo has notched up some big career wins. Most notably winning the Sailing Champions League in 2019. His team representing the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron were the only non-European team left in the final stage of the competition that saw 24 clubs representing ten nations compete.

Also throwing his hat in the ring is former Youth Match Racing World Champion William Dargaville from the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club. Will has reunited the team that won the title for Australia in 2016, where they claimed victory on the waters of New Caledonia. They will be in good shape if they can do a good job in the fleet racing aspect of the championship, to then allow them to show their strength in the match racing final stage.

Further expressions of interests have been received from teams from the Cruising Yacht Club Australia, Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron and host club the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club.

Expressions of interest will be close Monday 9 November 2020. Email the RPAYC sailing office prior to the closing date at sailtraining@rpayc.com.au
