Both RS Feva and Quba were on show at the recent China Cup International Youth Regatta (CCIYR). Hosted by China Cup in Shenzhen, in the South of China, close to Hong Kong.
Sailors from China, Hong Kong and New Zealand all taking part in the very prestigious Regatta. The New Zealand sailors took the opportunity to mentor some of the sailors from Wind Rider Sailing Club which gave them a chance to develop their skills throughout the regatta. Current RS Feva World Champ Eli Liefting was competing with a crew from the Wind Rider Yacht Club and continued his winning streak finishing in 1st place. It was not quiet a clean sweep though as one team from Vanhang sailing club took a race win off the current world champ . The event was a great chance for some sailors to gain their first experience in an international regatta. They were enthusiastic and competitive.
The Quba fleet were strong with sailors from Shenzhen taking out the 1st place. The fleet was strong and there was some great competition at the front end of the fleet. These are a wonderful one man boat and a great option as a step up from the Opti. The sailors really enjoyed their sailing and those from New Zealand were eager to come back next year to be part of such a well run regatta.
