Shirley Robertson names Yngling crewFollowing the departure of Sam Davies to sail aboard ClubMed with Tracy Edward, Shirley Robertson has ended her search for a third crew member for her Olympic Yngling campaign. Sarah Ayton (pictured) will join Inga Leask and Shirley on the road to Athens.
"Having trained with Sarah during the Sydney build up in the Europe, and also now sailed the Yngling for a week together, both Inga and I are sure now that we have an exceptionally strong team to work towards Athens," said Shirley. Having trained with Shirley in Sydney, Sarah has plenty of experience in working to Shirley's high standards and is accustomed to the work rate required. "Sarah has both the commitment, work ethic and winning experience we were looking for and unknown to me was a fantastically natural crew."
Following delivery of a new boat early in April, Shirley, Inga and Sarah are planning to compete in the European regatta circuit, putting in their first appearance at Hyeres.
