Australian Team at the Opening Ceremony at ILCA 4 Worlds Portugal


The ILCA 4 World Championship 2024, the largest junior sailing event in the world, is being held in Viana do Castelo, Portugal from 23rd to 30th June 2024. There are 51 countries being represented by 427 sailors, 108 coaches, and over 900 supporters.


Viana do Castelo provided some really great sailing conditions after a fog bound start on day 1.


There were six Australian sailors competing Olivia Aitken, Addison Heatley, Caterina Meyer, Molly Schotte, Henry Piggott and Jasper Stay.


The girls event came down to the wire with the two top Netherlands sailors Hieke Schraffordt and Feline Van Ede finishing only two points apart. First Australian Caterina Meyer had a win in the gold fleet in the finals series and showed great promise. U16 RQYS sailor Henry Piggott was 53 in the boys gold fleet which was won in a close contest by Canadian Carlos Charabati. The full series results are Here.
