Rose Dickson (Taylor, Year 11), and her sailing partner Eli Liefitng picked up first place at the RS Feva America’s Cup Endeavour Junior Regatta, held over 14 to 24 June.

260717 Junior America Cup


Rose travelled to Bermuda, home of the 35th America’s Cup, to compete against 16 other junior sailing teams from 12 nations in this four-day event.   

Rose and Eli represented New Zealand remarkably well with four first place and two second place finishes, putting them in front of the fleet to take out the number one spot.

Conditions were fine and the event proved a wonderful opportunity to inspire the next generation of young sailors.
