Sailing success

MAYLANDS sailor Duke Secco (12) sailed into fourth position last month in a category of the world mirror championships in Sydney.

As the youngest competitor, he was pitting himself against sailors who’ve been in the sport more than 30 years.

With the harbour bridge as a backdrop, Duke was up against 60 of the world’s best mirror dinghy captains in the open fleet and the classic timber mirrors.

Apart from picking up the junior award during the nationals, Duke finished an admiral fourth in the classic mirrors section and finished 34th in the overall fleet.
