Tom and Sophie Whitmore competed in the Yachting Australia Queensland Youth Championships as well as the Sabot State Titles in Yeppoon over the school holidays.

There are two divisions of Sabot Sailing, Senior which is over 12 years and Junior where both team members are under 12 years. Tom and Sophie compete in the Junior Division. All boats however race together on the course. After the first day’s racing they were first with two race wins. The second day there were 4 scheduled races but only two were able to be run as the waves got too dangerous for rescuing and retrieving boats. Tom and Sophie managed two more race wins! The last day started out fairly calm but the wind picked up as well as the waves by the
time racing began. Tom and Sophie were able to finish the regatta with 6 first places out of six races!
