Sailing Wins Large At WITS Sports Awards

The sports Industry celebrated several major accolades, including Michaela Robinson being named as the university’s Sports Woman of the Year.

Adding to that massive achievement, the Wits Yacht Club walked away with the Social Media Award while five sailors were awarded Full-Blue Cum Laude colours usually reserved for student athletes who have achieved senior national colours.

These sailors were Emma Clark, Hearn Johnson, Tawanda Chikasha and Michaela and her brother Ryan Robinson. They made up the JM BUSHA 54 Peace team that successfully competed in the Cape to Rio Yacht race earlier this year.

“Our club have often been overlooked so winning prizes at this year’s Wits Sports Awards meant a lot to me personally and to the club because it’s almost as if we’re finally being taken seriously as a competitive club,” explained Michaela Robinson. “Lots of work has been put into getting to that stage – USSA training camps, team racing regattas, little inter-varsity events, and sail training at Emmarentia Dam every second week.
