More than 100 yachts are expected to battle it out in the waters surrounding Hillarys marina this Easter with the announcement that Hillarys Yacht Club will host the WA State Laser Championships as part of its annual Sail Easter Coaching Regatta.
Now in its third year, the regatta previously attracted up to 65 yachts and more than 100 competitors sailing Optimist, Laser, Tasar, 125, 29ers, 420 and BIC dinghies.
Hillarys Yacht Club Commodore, Fred Gere said the club was excited to continue hosting the major state championship event, particularly one involving the high profile Olympic class Laser dinghy.
“Western Australians are on top of the world when it comes to competitive sailing with Matt Wearn from Fremantle being ranked the world number one Laser sailor and recently selected as a Tokyo Olympic Team representative. Added to this are our 470 sailors Nia Jerwood and Monique de Vries who won silver at the world cup series in Japan in September and were recently named the 2019 Female Sailors of the Year at the Australian Sailing Awards held in Sydney.
“As one of the youngest yacht clubs in WA, we are delighted to invite competitors and spectators to the regatta and are working hard to ensure that their needs both on and off the water are fully catered for during the three-day event,” said Commodore Gere.
