On day two of the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship, it was a late start and a late finish in Tavira, Portugal with competitors reaching the shore at 21:00 local time. The breeze came in late in the day and the first start came at 16:01 local time before the final competitors reached the shore at 21:00.

A light yet consistent westerly breeze ensured all eight fleets completed a full complement of races on the Algarve to shape up the leader boards nicely.

2014 SL16 World Champions Louis Flament and Charles Dorange (FRA) took two out of three race victories to move into the lead in the 16-boat fleet.

From six races, the French duo have three bullets alongside a second, a third and a sixth to lead the fleet on eight points, seven ahead of Jordi and Ruben Booth (ESP).

After racing the pair said, 'We had a good start and after that we controlled everything. We went fast and we won the races easily.'

The competition is fast and fierce with little separation in the fleet and the pair know the challenges they face at the event, 'The ISAF Youth Worlds is more difficult than the Open SL16 Worlds. The Spanish, New Zealand and finally the Brazilians are all very strong and are our main rivals,' said Flament, 'and Great Britain,' joked Dorange with the British team in sight.

Flament and Dorange are revelling in their ISAF Youth Worlds experience with smiles aplenty amongst the youngsters. The pair concluded, 'It's a special event because there's one representative from each nation and we're privileged to represent France. It's a pleasure and an honour to be in the French team and we are happy to represent our nation.'

Overnight leaders Kim Vidal and Antonio Lopes (BRA) have dropped to third overall after finishing in the middle of the pack in their races.

Seven further races are scheduled over the remaining three days of competition with anything possible out on the race course.

Whilst the 29ers were the first off the water, the RS:X fleets were last off, reaching the shore at 21:00 local time after completing three races in the RS:X Boys and Girls fleets.

Russia's Stefaniya Elfutina was the stand out performer in the RS:X Girls fleet taking double bullets and a fourth. She holds top spot on 11 points and is followed by China's Shi Hongmei and Italy's Marta Maggetti.

The top four RS:X Boys racers have cemented their positions in the leading spots with seven points splitting them. Overnight leader Yael Paz (ISR) tops the bills on 11 points and is followed by Mattia Camboni (ITA) on 14 and Radoslaw Furmanski (POL) on 17 points.

Competition in the RS:X Boys is close knit with the day's race wins going the way of Paz, Camboni and Spain's Antonio Bonet.

It was a day for Spain in the Laser Radial with three of four race wins going the way of Spanish racers.

Spain's Martina Reino was head and shoulders above the 46-boat girl’s fleet as she took double bullets whilst Joel Rodriguez took the fourth race bullet in the 57-boat boys division.

Reino moves up into second overall and was thrilled with her day, 'I had very good starts and then the races were easy for me,' smiled Reino.

'When you start the race very good you can go where you want and that's the easy part. In the first one I won by over a minute and in the second it was also by a big distance.'

The opening bout for Rodriguez, 2014 Radial Youth European Champion, did not go to plan as he finished 12th but he bounced back and sits fifth overall. He explained his day, 'In the first race I had a very bad start and was at the bottom of the fleet which made it difficult. I finished 12th and then in the second race I started good and with my speed I was able to win the race.

'It was a very close race with like five guys very close. The racing is at a very good level, very close and very difficult to win.'

The Spaniards took a good haul of Nations Trophy points from the Laser Radial races and both sailors have an eye on the prize, 'I think we can win the Nations Trophy but the other countries are very good and it's difficult to win but can do it,' said Reino.

Rodriguez added, 'I think the sailors come to win the individual regatta but if we can win the Nations Trophy then that would be great.'

Haddon Hughes (USA) retained her lead in the Laser Radial Girls fleet with a discarded 18th and a second in race four. Italy's Valentina Balbi is third overall.

Japan's Ibuki Koizumi and Kotaro Matsuo and Malaysia's Mohammad Faizal Norizan and Ahmad Syukri Abdul Aziz picked up the day's 420 Boys race victories and have a strong hold on the top two spots.

Koizumi and Matsuo lead on four points and are followed by the Malaysian pair who have eight points.

In the first race of the day Faizal and Syukri read the conditions perfectly and lead from the off as Syukri explained, 'We had a good start in the first one and at the starting line we crossed all of the fleet from the pin end. The Italians followed us and they finished behind us in second at the end.

'We will try to keep in the top five for the rest of the event.'

Faizal and Syukri have been racing in the 420 for two year's having competed against each other in the Optimists. The pair had a string of success in Optimists and have transferred their skills expertly to the 420. With Japan in their sights and five more races to go anything can happen.

France's Hippolyte Machetti and Sidoine Dantes trail the Malaysians by seven points in third overall.

In the 27-boat 420 Girls fleet Theres Dahnke and Birte Winkel (GER) picked up a pair of second place finishes and move into pole position.

The Germans overthrew day one leaders Silvia Mas and Marta Davila (ESP) but only have a slender two point lead.

2013 silver medallists Nadja Horwitz and Carmina Malsh (CHI) are third overall.

France's Brice Yriex and Loic Fischer Guillou (FRA) took top spot in the 30-boat 29er fleet after a second day of consistent racing on Tavira's waters. The French duo recorded a 1-4-1 scoreline and take the lead away from Hong Kong's Yann Thierry D'Argrenlieu and Nathan Bradley who drop to third.

Quinn Wilson and Riley Gibbs (USA) moved up to second overall.

Racing resumes on 13:00 local time on Wednesday 16 July.
