Sunday 19 Nov 2017 by Achievements@Redlands

Congratulations to Mitchell Luxton, Year 6, who was selected to crew in the 2017 Queensland State Titles on an International Etchell Olympic Class.

This regatta was held from 25 - 29 October, giving Mitchell a rare opportunity to sail with both an Olympian and two national Champions. 

As the youngest and lightest competitor at the regatta, Mitchell sailed hard for five solid days.  Despite being covered in bruises and utterly exhausted, Mitchell was so happy and excited to have the privilege of sailing with such a talented and kind Skipper and crew.

In a huge fleet of 38 boats – Mitchell and his teammates WON beating the current Australian champions and second in the World boat to name just one!! 

Mitchell's  name is now on the Queensland State Etchell Championship Honour board with the likes of John Bertrand.
