Harken International Youth Match Racing Championship 2019
Teams compete for the Rockin' Robin Perpetual Trophy on the RPAYC's Elliott Class 7 performance keelboats with a crew of four or five, all of who must be under 23 years of age.
The 2019 HARKEN International Youth Match Racing Championship marks the 22nd consecutive year with HARKEN Australia as naming rights sponsor. Their ongoing commitment to the development of youth match racing is a credit to this leading manufacturer and marketer of quality sailboat hardware and accessories.

"The HARKEN" as it is known in youth sailing circles worldwide stands out as one of the premier events for youth on the international match racing calendar and has during its 25 year history served as a launch pad for a number of local yachting stars including dual Harken winning skippers James Spithill (and America's Cup dual skipper winner), Michael Dunstan, Steve Jarvin, Torvar Mirsky and more recently William Tiller who has since become a rising star on the World Circuit.
