2012 Youth Worlds: Competition begins in Dublin Bay, Ireland + Video

'March past 2012 ISAF Youth Worlds, Ireland'    David Branigan/Oceansport

Nine of New Zealand’s top youth sailors are due to start competition at the Four Star Pizza ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships tonight in Dublin Bay, Ireland.

This annual week-long regatta is regarded as the pinnacle event of the global youth sailing calendar, and is a significant step for many into the Olympic class pathways. 350 sailors aged 13-19 years from 63 nations plus coaches and team leaders are at the venue. racing runs from 14 to 21st July, local time.

The NZL Yachting Trust Youth Team who will represent NZ include:

Andrew McKenzie: Male Laser Radial
Jayvee Buchanan and Matthew Morrison: Male 420
Ellie Copeland and Erica Dawson: Female 420
Tomer Simhony and Gemma Jones: Open Multihull SL16
Alex Munro and Trent Rippey: 29er skiff

New Zealand will not be represented in three of the events, the Boys and Girls Windsurfing, and Girls Laser Radial. Not fielding a full team will make it difficult for New Zealand to win the premier trophy, the Volvo Trophy, for points accumulated by all teams in the regatta.

These nine sailors have a strong support team with them for this event, Ian Neely, Jim Maloney, Scott Kennedy and Karin Adelinger-Smith.



Laser Radial sailor Andrew McKenzie was nominated by the team to be the NZ flag bearer and team leader for the Opening Ceremonies which took place yesterday.

Less than two weeks ago Andrew earned himself a silver medal at the World Laser Radial Youth Championships only to missing out on the gold medal based on a count back system of breaking the tie for overall points.

New Zealand has a proud history of success at the ISAF Youth Worlds which dates back to 1971. Over the history of the event kiwis have returned home with a total of 42 medals including 15 Gold, 15 Silver and 12 Bronze, and this year’s team will be looking to increase that tally.

Past notable winners include Americas Cup skippers, Olympic Medallists and Volvo Ocean Race sailors such as, Russell Coutts, Dean Barker, Stuart Bannatyne. Approximately half of the current NZ Olympic Sailing Team have medalled at this event.

The first races will take place on 14 July, and racing will continue until July 21st.
