The Youth Sail events are a combination of a coaching clinic and the State Youth Championships. The events are open to all junior and youth sailors. They are a fantastic event for learning new skills with top coaches, meeting new friends and having a great time on the water and at the end you get to put what you have learnt into action by competing against your peers in a fun and supportive environment.

Australian Sailing National General Manager, Ben Callard says “it is a thrill and very exciting to have Zhik on board as our naming rights sponsor for the Youth Sail Series. These events are the premier Junior and Youth Sailing events across the country and it is only right that they are matched with our country’s premier sailing apparel brand, Zhik. We are very much looking forward to being able to boost our events by handing out Zhik gear and vouchers as prizes to the junior and youth sailors across the country.”

Zhik CEO Mat Belcher, also Australia’s most successful Olympic sailor, has been a long-time supporter of the Youth Sail Events attending many of the events himself to provide inspiration and advice to the young participants. It is fantastic that this support is able to continue and grow.

To purchase your Zhik apparel please visit their website or local trade partner and support those who support sailing.
