NZL sailing in the Multihull (SL16) - Day 1, 2012 ISAF Youth Worlds, Dublin, Ireland ISAF Youth Worlds http://www.isafyouthworlds.com

The first day at the Four Star Pizza ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships, being sailed at Dublin Ireland, concluded after a long seven hours on the water, and two races for all fleets.

'For most of our team, today was a solid start considering the tricky and shifty conditions' said Ian Neely, head coach. 'Ellie and Erica especially did a great job in their first race.'

Erica Dawson and Ellie Copeland started their regatta with a race win in the extremely tight Girl’s 420 fleet. A 21st in the second race for this Murrays Bay Sailing Club/Wakatere Boating Club duo has left them in 11th at the end of the first day. The first five girls 420 teams are all tied for overall points, as are eighth-10th.

Also from Murrays Bay Sailing Club, Gemma Jones and Tomer Somhony (pictured above) carded a 12th and fourth in their two races and so are seventh overall in the SL 16 catamaran. Jayvee Buchanan and Matthew Morrison from Canterbury’s Charteris Bay Yacht Club are eighth in the men’s 420, while Wakatere’s Alex Munro and Tauranga’s Tent Rippey are 14th in the 29er.

Kohimarama Yacht Club’s Andrew McKenzie was one of the thirteen Laser Radial Boys that was caught over the start line too early in the first race, and received a 59 point Black Flag Penalty (BFD) as a result.

Ian continued, 'Trent is keeping the team happy and refreshed with his unique style and humour'
