Year 13 student Greta Pilkington has been selected for the 2020 NZL Sailing Foundation Youth Team in the Laser Radial, after winning the girls’ Laser Radial in the recent NZL Sailing foundation Youth Championships.
The team was selected after four days of intense competition at the Manly Sailing Club, where racers battled high winds and big waves. The Youth Team would normally have represented New Zealand at the youth sailing world championships, which were to be held in Brazil, but were cancelled due to Covid-19.
Greta represented the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron. Congratulations Greta.
