The NZL Sailing Foundation annual NZ Youth Championships is the pinnacle event for young sailors in New Zealand.

In a year disrupted by COVID-19 travel restrictions, sailors were relieved to see this event remain on the calendar. 

Despite challenging rough and windy conditions during the regatta, Year 13 student Hamish McLaren (Greenbank) along with his crew Sofia Higgot raced in the Nacra 15 and won the championships! 

This is another stellar achievement for the King's College sailor, who along with his crew won the 2020 Harken National Secondary Schools Keelboat Championship. Read more about the crew's success in the Winter edition of the King's Courier magazine.
