Canadian Youth Match Racing Worlds Team Heads to Australia

Nov 29, 2023

Pre-start in Sydney Harbour

The Youth Match Racing World Championship 2023 Will Take Place 9 – 15 December 2023. The 2023 Youth Match Racing World Championship will be held at the Cruising Club of Australia on Sydney Harbour, December 9-15, 2023, in Elliott 7’s. To compete, sailors must be under the age of 23 in 2023.

Richard Rychlik Jr, skipper, will be making his Youth Match Racing Worlds debut, hosted by the CYCA this December. Richard is super excited to be leading a team filled with some of the best sailors in Canada. He is a fierce competitor with years of keelboat and dinghy experience and a handful of national championships in Canada and the US. With a rigorous training schedule in place, Richard is excited for what’s in store in the land down under. 

“After winning the 2023 CICSA Match Racing Championship with the University of Toronto and attending high level match racing events like Governor’s Cup and various Oakcliff events, I became enthralled with the extremely competitive nature of match racing and just about every aspect of this type of racing.

With this in mind, I decided to apply to the 2023 Youth Match Racing World Championship in Sydney, Australia to represent my country, Canada, Oakville Yacht Squadron and Port Credit YC. After some waiting, I was lucky to be one of twelve skippers chosen to attend this prestigious event.
