Woodleigh Sailing Team

​The Woodleigh Sailing Team in 2022 has been booming. The team has seen new faces coming through the program, as well as experienced sailors who have been showing the ropes and guiding the team in an exciting new direction. We have also welcomed our new Coach Will McKenzie, who brings a wealth of experience and fun to the program. Since 2021 the team has doubled in size and brought in new talent, letting us rub shoulders with the top teams.

Woodleigh will be represented in Victorian Team Sailing Championships at Mornington YC on April 1-3. We will be aiming for that top spot, which doesn't happen without week-in, week-out training. Every Wednesday night, our squad is either competing in the John Middleton Trophy at Davey's Bay YC or working on our strategy and skills at Mornington YC.

Lucy Laverty represented Woodleigh in GirlSail at Davey's Bay YC, skippering her team (combined with Toorak College) to 3rd place in Silver Fleet in testing conditions!

Thank you to Sailing Coordinator Mr Angelico for driving us to training and events, being out on powerboats with Will, and ensuring we are having a good time. Overall, our team is strong and always having fun on and off the water. We will be firing at the upcoming regatta.
