Young 88s @ SSANZ Lewmar Triple Series
July - August 2010
With 30-60 mile courses, 2 crew and 3 races spaced approximately one month apart, SSANZ has come up with a successful formula that just gets better every year. 2019 saw a record eleven Young 88s entered in the series. 88 sailing is mainly about line honours but adjustments to handicap time correction factors added another dimension with boats sailing under jib and main to compete with the boats carrying extras for handicap prizes.
Mixing it up in 2020
The Young 88 is an ideal trainer and trial horse for any crews keen to start working towards the 2024 Olympic Mixed Doubles event.
To recognise this new event and growing trend in our sport the Young 88 Association will be providing a new "Young 88 SSANZ Triple Series Mixed Doubles Trophy" to be awarded to the first boat on line in the series with a mixed crew in every race . Click here for more info
