HARKEN YOUTH MATCH RACING REGATTA R PAYC dominated the podium with a 2nd and 3rd Place at the 2016 Harken Youth Match Racing Regatta This year saw a strong international and local contingent battle it out on the water for the prestigious Rockin Robin trophy. Teams from the USA, The Netherlands, New Zealand, along with interstate teams from Perth and Darwin battled it out on the idyllic waters of Pittwater. In the end, Will Boulden and his Alpha Racing Team from Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club in Perth emerged victorious winning the 2016 Harken International Youth Match Racing Championships after four days of racing at the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club (RPAYC). The team of Mark Wong, Alex Negri and James Farquharson (YD Graduate) faced off against local sailor Malcolm Parker and his team from the RPAYC in some of the closest match racing that we have seen at the Harken! Boulden thanked the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club and Harken for putting on the event. He is ranked 46th in the ISAF Open Rankings and is just 20 years of age, making him one of Australia’s rising youth match racers to watch in the future. 62 YACHTSMAN The finals racing was close with both Malcolm Parker ‘IAe €…Ή ½Υ±‘•Έ™₯‘Ρ₯Ήœ‘…ɐ™½ΘΡ‘”‘…΅Α₯½ΉΝ‘₯ΐ)Ρ₯Ρ±”…Ή€Δ°ΐΐΐΑΙ₯锁΅½Ή•δ™½Θ™₯ΙΝЁΑ±…”Έ%ΈI…”€Δ°)A…Ι­•ΘΑΥЁё”‘•…Ё½Έ ½Υ±‘•ΈΝ‘ΥΡΡ₯Ήœ‘₯΄½ΥЁ…‰½Ω”)Ρ‘”‰½…Ё±…δ΅±₯Ή”‰•™½Ι” ½Υ±‘•Έ΅…‘”„ΝΉ•…­δ½΅”)‰…¬½Ω•ΘΡ‘”ΝΡ…ΙЁ‰½…ЁѼέ₯ΈΡ‘”™…Ω½ΥΙ•Α₯Έ•Ή½˜)Ρ‘”±₯Ή”…Ήέ₯ΈΡ‘”Ι…”Έ)Q‘”‘•…Ё݅́½Έ₯ΈΡ‘”Ν•½ΉΙ…”°έ₯Ρ ‰½Ρ Ρ•…΅Μ)ΑΥΝ‘₯Ήœ•…Ι±δΡΌΡ‘”ΝΡ…ΙЁ±₯Ή”…Ή ½Υ±‘•Έέ₯ΉΉ₯ΉœΡ‘”)Α₯Έ•ΉΈ•ΝΑ₯Ρ” ½Υ±‘•ΈΙ½ΥΉ‘₯ΉœΡ‘”™₯ΙΝЁ‰½ΡΡ½΄΅…Ι¬)₯ΈΡ‘”±•…°5…±½±΄έ•ΉΠ½ΈΡΌΡ…­”Ρ‘”±•™ΠΝ₯‘”½˜Ρ‘”)½ΥΙΝ”½ΈΡ‘”Ή•αЁΥΑέ₯Ή…ΉΝΉΥ¬…‘•…ΡΌέ₯ΈΡ‘”)Ν•½ΉΙ…”Έ)Q‘”ΑΙ•ΝΝΥΙ”Νх啐½Έ₯ΈI…”€Μέ₯Ρ „ΝΑ±₯Ёх¬)ΝΡ…ΙЁ…Ή ½Υ±‘•Έ…ΙΙε₯Ήœ„Α•Ή…±Ρ丁Q‘”‰½…Ρ́‘Υ•±±•)‰½άΡΌ‰½ά½ΈΡ‘”ΥΑέ₯Ήέ₯Ρ 5…±½±΄Ι½ΥΉ‘₯Ήœ™₯ΙΝΠ)‰ΥЁ ½Υ±‘•Έ‰•₯Ήœ…‰±”ΡΌ½΅Α±•Ρ”‘₯́Α•Ή…±Ρ䁽ΈΡ‘”)ΥΑέ₯ΉΈI…”€ΜΡΌ ½Υ±‘•Έ…™Ρ•Θ„±½Ν”‘½έΉέ₯Ή…Ή)±•…Έ‰½…Ё‘…Ή‘±₯ΉœΈ)Q‘₯́ѽ½¬Ρ‘”Ι…₯ΉœΡΌ„΅…э Α½₯ΉΠέ‘•Ι”A…Ι­•Θ)ΝΡ…ΙΡ••Ω•Ή±δέ₯Ρ „Α•Ή…±Ρ䁽™˜Ρ‘”±₯Ή”ΈQ‘”Ρ•…΅Μ)Νх啐±½Ν”½ΈΡ‘”ΥΑέ₯Ή°A…Ι­•ΘΙ½ΥΉ‘₯Ήœ©ΥΝЁ…‘•…)½˜ ½Υ±‘•Έ…Ёё”Ρ½ΐ΅…Ι¬…ΉΡ‘•Έ½΅Α±•Ρ₯Ήœ‘₯
