NSWIS youngster medals in Medemblik

Posted on December 15, 2011 by

NSWIS sailor Sasha Ryan has won women’s 470 bronze over the weekend at the 2011 470 Junior World Championships in Medemblik, Netherlands.

A lacklustre start from Ryan and fellow Australian Chelsea Hall saw them finish 14th and ninth in the first two races of competition, although the pair responded with two second and one third place over the next eight races to be well in the mix for medals.

The medal race was another testing experience for the young duo, however despite the slow start the Australians powered home to finish seventh in the race and take world championship bronze with 82 points.
