2014 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship - US Team mid-event report

2014 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship - With three days in the books at the 2014 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships, the American contingent looks to continue their strong showing over the final two days of racing in Tavira, Portugal. US athletes are currently in close medal contention in three classes (Laser Radial, 29er and SL16), and the possibility remains that Team USA could finish in the top ten in six of eight classes.

This overall consistency has the United States currently sitting in third in the prestigious Nations Trophy standings, ahead of 36 countries and trailing only France and Spain. Challenging conditions each day in the form of light, shifty winds have required a full-team effort to understand and interpret, and a group approach, explained Team Leader and Head Coach Leandro Spina (Miami, Fla.), has been the key to many solid performances so far. 'I’m really pleased with how the team has raced,' said Spina, who also serves as the Youth Development Director for the US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider. 'These kids are having fun and staying focused, but they are also trying to help each other every day. They are disciplined on and off the water, even though the days have been very long.'

Ravi Parent (Bradenton, Fla.), who has returned for his second Youth Worlds, said that the team briefings each day have been a significant help. 'We meet each morning as a full team, fully rested, and discuss what happened the day before,' said Parent. 'There has been a pattern to the conditions here, and talking it over with our coaches Mike [Kalin] and Kevin [Hall], and the rest of the team has really helped us. We are starting to figure out the venue. I’m learning a lot from them about how to evaluate a race course.' For Parent, a second chance at the Youth Worlds podium represents a big opportunity, and has necessitated a new game plan. 'I have a more patient approach this time. Last year I was really focused on my equipment, and figuring out the SL16, but this time I’m just focusing on using my overall multihull skills.'

Haddon Hughes (Houston, Texas) jumped out to an early lead in the Laser Radial class, and held the top spot over the first two days before falling to a close second on Day three after three race wins by Spaniard Martina Reino Cacho. Hughes, who finished fifth in 2013, said that last year served as a springboard for an even stronger campaign in 2014. 'It was such a great event last year, I was so excited to come again. It’s great competition, you learn so much.' Her stellar showing in light air so far this week has been especially impressive for the Texan, who normally specializes in heavy conditions.

Another Youth Worlds veteran, Quinn Wilson (Ojai, Calif.), now sailing with Riley Gibbs (Long Beach, Calif.), is truly on a mission at this event. In two previous Youth Worlds campaigns with brother Dane Wilson, younger sibling Quinn has come within just a few points of the podium each time. Currently sitting in second, Wilson and Gibbs will have to rely on their significant combined experience to stay consistent over the final races of the regatta.
