A disruptive collision between Alpha Racing Team (Boulden) and Swan River Sailing Team (Prieto-Low) on the second race of the Finals did not stop Will Boulden from winnng the title.

The Alpha Racing Team lost only one race from a total of 22 battles during the 2021 Youth Cup. Well done to the entire crew from Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club: Will Boulden (Skipper), James Farquharson (Bow), Lachy Gilmour (Main), NiallMorrow (Trim), and Alex Negri (Pit).

The 2021 Youth Cup is also part of the WA Tour, a circuit made of a series of five events, targeted to youth sailors, sailed over the 2020/21 Season in Western Australia. The WA Tour is structured as a series with aggregated scoring, overall prize money, and handicaps to encourage fierce competition, dedication, hard work, and skill development for local youth sailors during this irregular Perth summer. Alpha Racing Team is also the winner of the WA Tour.

Swan River Sailing thanks all sponsors, Yacht Club Members and Volunteers.
