We would like to extend our congratulations to Fremantle Sailing Club Sailor Matt Wearn who secured his maiden ILCA 7 World Championship over the weekend, breaking a 3 year streak of silver medals. In doing so Matt also qualifies Australia for a spot in Paris 2024 in the ILCA 7s and solidifies himself as the front runner for selection for Australia.

We’d like to also congratulate all our other FSC Sailors who competed in The Hauge over the last week.

Additionally we would like to congratulate Stefan Elliot Shircore who
