ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship 2011
Zadar, Croatia

Twelve sailors will represent New Zealand at the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships to be staged in Zadar, Croatia from 7-16 July this year.
The 2011 team includes some familiar names with three members, including Molly Meech, Georgia Schofield and Logan Dunning-Beck, already having Youth World Championships experience under their belt having competed in Istanbul, Turkey in 2010.

New Zealand has a proud history of success at the ISAF Youth Worlds which dates back to 1971. Over the history of the event kiwis have returned home with a total of 42 medals including 15 Gold, 15 Silver and 12 Bronze, and this year's team will be looking to increase that tally.

In preparation for the regatta the team will be involved in a busy schedule of training camps, domestic and international competition.

2011 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship

The 2011 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship will take place in Zadar, Croatia from 7-16 July 2011.

The ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship is open to competitors aged under 19 in the year of the championship (i.e. for Croatia, under 19 on 31 December 2011) in the events and equipment listed below (all supplied), the Youth Worlds occupies a unique place in the sailing calendar. Simply getting to the championship is a major achievement for most as entry is limited to one boat per nation, per event, meaning sailors first having to win through their national qualification series.
