The Newcastle Youth Match Racing Championship, racing for the Thirkell Trophy, is NCYC’s premiere youth match-racing event and aims to build the competition & match racing skills of local youth sailors. This event, like the CrackerJack Cup, will have a focus on training & development through coach feedback and umpire debrief/Q&A sessions. It also provides additional regatta preparation for teams leading into the SHARP Australian Youth Match Racing Championship to be held at the CYCA.
World Sailing ranking (which has been applied for) will provide the opportunity for youth skippers to gain valuable ranking points.
