What an amazing final day of action at the Tarifa, Wing Pro 2021, where 15 year old Riccardo Zorzi, stormed up the ladder to win the Surf-Freestyle discipline. On the racing side, Mathis Ghio, and Olivia Piana showed amazing focus and speed to win. Team Childhood is a Swedish - Dutch joint venture sailing programme which draws attention to the World Childhood Foundation. The aim of the campaign is to offer young sailors the opportunity to learn and improve. Here is a wrap of their activities during 2021. Harry Price’s talent was obvious before he came into the 18's this season as skipper for the long-term sponsor, Rag and Famish Hotel, but it’s still hard not to be surprised by just how quickly the level of his, and his team’s ability, has been highlighted under very difficult conditions. Of course the happiest sailor in Australia was Matt Allen who had his protest for time redress against Celestial, the winner on elapsed time of the ROLEX Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, upheld. He then was elevated into first and gained his third win in his yacht Ichi Ban.
