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 by welcoming strong competition to come and contest the event. 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 Graded 4 Event will provide the opportunity for youth skippers to gain valuable ranking points.
