2017 Sunfish Youth World Championship - DAY 2

Posted August 25, 2017

Light and shifty air didn't slow down this group of Youth champion sailors!

What started out as light air (5-7 mph) coming for the N/NE for Race 1 turned into a little heavier air (6-8 mph) coming from the S/SW. With the windward mark moving in a semi-circle, youth sailors followed the flow and sailed well despite the shifty conditions.

In Race One on Day Two Angello Giuria of Peru moved up to 1st place in the total two day standings. Not far behind was Ignacio Antequera Erro of Spain who is 2nd in the total two day standings. Ignacio scored a bullet in Race One. In the 3rd place standings on Day Two is Alejandro Mago of Peru who moved up from 6th place in Day One. Miranda Paz, our Top Female from Day One, remains Top Female on Day Two with a 4th place standing for the two day total. In 5th place on Day Two, with a bullet in Race 5, is Simon Gomez. Clemente Sequel of Chile got a bullet in Race 6 on Day Two placing him in 6th place overall on Day Two.

Three more races will be held tomorrow to determine the final winners. All 21 competitors are eager to test their sailing prowess in perhaps air that's a bit heavier. But what will be will be. And, so far, they have been adjusting perfectly!
