180 sailors braved some tough North Atlantic Ocean conditions in Under 21 World Championships just concluded in Tangier Morocco.

In the ILCA 6 fleet, Eve McMahon from Ireland won the title from Anja von Allmen from Switzerland. Italian Carlotta Rizzardi was third. Our only female sailor, Frances Beebe sailed consistently finishing 25th in the 66 boat fleet.

The ILCA 7 fleet with 115 boats, was headed up by Great Britain’s Finley Dickinson from Oskar Madonich Ukraine and Caleb Armit from New Zealand. The Australian ILCA 7 squad did well with six sailors finishing in the top 30. The best Australian Stefan Elliot-Shircore was in the top three for most of the regatta, but dropped to sixth in the last two days.
