SOME of the best up-and-coming young sailors have converged on the East Fremantle Yacht Club for a special training event.
Coming from as far as Esperance and Geraldton, 22 junior sailors aged six to 14 will participate in the three-day event on the Swan River, finishing tomorrow.
All 11 boats involved in the event are Pelicans, a double-handed dual-sailed junior training dinghy with more than 60 years of history that was originally designed to race around Rottnest Island as a training boat.
Locals are invited to the Swan River foreshore around the East Fremantle Yacht Club to catch a glimpse of the future stars in action.
