Youth Challenge presentation wrap-up

Last Friday evening the Youth Challenge Annual awards took place in the Bayview Room.

The program has had so many success stories over the 2017 -2018 sailing season, thanks also to the great support of the volunteer base. Special Mentions on the evening went to David Carew, James Hodgens, Barbara Pritchard for all their efforts over many years of helping running the program.

At the beginning of 2018 the program has transitioned into the new club RS Quest dinghy, with 10 brand new boats bought with the help of several members. The fleet may even end up expanding slightly in the near future, with possible new hulls on the horizon.

The last Stonehaven Cup was won by King Island Yacht Club, so the challenge this season is to get Brighton back in the winner’s circle!

Once again, if you are looking to be part of an exciting team this year, make sure you book in early for a spot on the Team Brighton Youth Challenge. Enrolments will be out shortly for the entire Junior and Youth Programs so keep an eye on this space!
