In the second race Team Huyard from USA lead around the first two marks but was passed by Team Lutz to take the race three win. Team T. Probst from the USA finished in third. Team Chile was called OSC and went back to restart and made it back to 15th.

After three races Americans Jonathan Lutz, Alexandra Jones and Nicholas Sertl show that consistency pays and are in first place with six points.

After racing sailors enjoyed a pizza party at the MacDonald's home and then are taking a bus trip to see Niagara Falls. Strong winds coupled with rain are forecasted for tomorrow. Racing is scheduled to begin with a 1000 warning gun.

The Lightning Youth Worlds provides an opportunity for young sailors 19 and under to meet, compete and create long-lasting friendships and connections to this International Class. The boats are provided, housing is provided, and although the level of competition is top-notch, the fun is abundant.
