Briefings August 10, 2022

It's fair to say a bunch of young New Zealand sailors have been flying the flag high overseas with a series of top results internationally. We feature three of those successes from the past fortnight in this edition of Briefings, from skiffs and dinghies to match racing. We also bring you the latest Regional Roundup, a look at the life of former Olympian Mark Paterson and a reminder to get your nominations through for this year's Aon Yachting Excellence Awards.

As always, let us know if you've got any news or suggestions by emailing michaelb@yachtingnz.org.nz
