SailGP Championship Trophy Event at SPASC!
Speers Point Amateur Sailing Club (SPASC) was honoured to host members of the Australian SailGP team yesterday.
On arrival, Jason Waterhouse and Nina Curtis paraded the SailGP trophy through an honour guard formed of our Junior Sailing boats and members and guests.
Our Junior Sailing members then had a photo session with Jason and Nina in front of the clubhouse.
The Juniors then bombarded Jason and Nina with lots of questions about SailGP and their experiences in a Q&A session.
Jason and Nina then conducted an on-water coaching session and participated in a fun relay race with the Juniors.
The day was a huge success for our Junior Sailors and SailGP alike. Particularly, the visit provided a unique experience for SPASC Juniors just starting their sailing journey to talk to and be inspired by two Olympic Silver medalists. SPASC warmly thanks Jason, Nina and SailGP for choosing to visit our club, and our Junior Sailing Manager, Andy Clark for facilitating the day.
