With an epic northern summer now transitioning to Autumn, the 2021 WASZP Season is still firing, with the Irish Nationals and USA Nationals taking place over the weekend, as well as a smaller event in Buenos Aires.
One thing has been consistent over the last month and that is some epic results from our incredibly talented Women in WASZP sailors. Firstly, Mathilde Robertstad of Norway became the first female sailor to win a EuroCup leg at Kiel Week in Germany and has been followed by further impressive results by CJ Perez taking the overall win at the USA WASZP Nationals and Hattie Rogers continuing her consistent season with a 5th at the Irish Nationals.
Hawaiian sailor CJ took the win in front of a quality field including multiple champion Sam Blouin who came in 2nd. CJ is a female athlete on the United States SailGP team and jetted out straight from the nationals to Cadiz for the Spain SailGP. Perez credits her training in the WASZP to gaining the skills she needs to be a valuable member of the greater US SailGP Team.
The final act of the northern summer will see the Spain EuroCup held at Roses 29-31st of October. There is only 12points separating Roberstad and Rogers for the overall Womens championship, it will be an enthralling battle.
