As the Australian Youth Sailing Team heads to Croatia to compete in the 2011 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship now is the perfect time to get to know this group of young Australian sailors through a series of new video biographies available online.
The videos are available on the Yachting Australia YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/YachtingAUS, and on Facebook, www.facebook.com/YouthSailingGP, and were filmed during a recent training camp in Mandurah, Western Australia, before the team headed to Europe.
The members of the Australian Youth Sailing Team talk about how they got into the sport, their love of sailing, what it means to them to represent Australia and a number of other topics.
The 2011 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship are being held in Zadar, Croatia, from July 7 to 16 with 12 Australian sailors set to compete in eight classes.
The individual video biographies can be viewed at the following links:
