The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) is pleased to announce that twenty competitors from eleven nations have been approved to receive funding from the Athlete Participation Programme (APP) for the 2013 Sail First ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship.

From the 20 competitors chosen to benefit from APP funding at the Sail First ISAF Youth Worlds in Limassol, Cyprus from 13-20 July there will be seven sailors in the Laser Radial Boys, five in the Laser Radial Girls, three in the 420 Boys, three in the 420 Girls, one in the Open 29er and one RS:X Boy.

Since 2002 APP funding has enabled over 200 sailors the chance to compete at the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships.

Of the 2013 recipients the Youth Worlds welcomes back previous APP funded athletes Owen Siese (BER), Mathias Robertson (CHI), Nadja Horwitz (CHI), Maria Jose Poncell Horowitz (CHI), Rodrigo Ducase (CHI), Stephanie Devaux-Lovell (LCA), Luka Tosic (SRB) and Oleksander Tugaryev (UKR).

With some steady results from Dublin Bay, Ireland last year they will benefit from the same support in their bid to push up the leader board.

APP has given developing sailing nations the chance and opportunity to represent their nation at the premier regatta for youth sailors. Sailors from Botswana, El Salvador, Andorra, St. Lucia and Paraguay have all been given the opportunity to compete on a level playground with developed and experienced sailing nations.

The 2013 Sail First ISAF Youth Worlds is no different and welcomes sailors from Mozambique for the first time. Laser Radial sailors Neidy Justini Nhaquile and Velick Manchica will fly their nation's flag in Cyprus.

Limassol, Cyprus will host the 43rd edition of the Sail First ISAF Youth Worlds and the sailors on APP will be able to compete in Limassol with subsidised travel and entry.

They will also benefit from the coaching of Hugh Styles, World Youth Sailing Trust coach, who will guide the athletes.
