Congratulations to Ali Nightingale for being named as a member in the 2015 ISAF Youth World Sailing Championships which run from 27 December to 3 January in Langkawi, Malaysia. 

The prestigious international event sees national teams from around the world gather together for a week long regatta for youth class sailors under-19 years of age. New Zealand will be represented in all nine events being contested in 2015.

Eight of the team represent the Murrays Bay Sailing Club on Auckland’s north shore, but sailors hailing from the Canterbury and Wellington regions also feature in the line-up. They range in age from 15 to 18 years old with just one, Ali Nightingale, having represented New Zealand previously at ISAF Youth World Championships.
