Justin Liu and Sherman Cheng at the 420 World Championships

Justin Liu and Sherman Cheng wrote to us this week with more good news of gold medals from Haifa in Israel:

‘We would like to bring you some good news regarding our sailing in the past weeks. The 420 World Championships, which was held in Israel, Haifa concluded yesterday on 31 August. A total of 83 boats entered the competition with strong teams from Italy, France, Israel and GBR. A total of 17 races were completed (6 Qualifying and 11 Final) in very shifting and tricky conditions with winds ranging from 3-20knots. We are delighted to inform you that we clinched the gold medal in the Open category.

The 420 World Championships and the Kiel Week event in June formed our two selection trials for the year end Asian Games in China. We are currently awaiting the selection decision from the selection panel in Singapore regarding selection for the Asian Games. We definitely hope to bring you more good news in the coming months.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Musto for your continued support as we strive to continue achieving sailing excellence. The gear that MUSTO has provided allowed us to stay cool and fresh each day in the hot and dry temperatures here in Haifa, Israel. With temperatures soaring into the 30s, the MUSTO gear has definitely made an impact in regards to our racing performance.

Once again, thank you for continuing to believe in our team.’
