420 and 470 Junior European Championships - Riding the waves on day 1

At the 420 and 470 Junior European Championships, class champions are already on top after two races for all fleets on a predominantly light breeze day with the wind ranging from 8-15 knots in shifty conditions.

Reigning 470 Junior World Champions, Jordi Xammar/Joan Herp of Spain launched their assault on the Junior Europeans title with two race wins to easily take the lead over team mates David Charles/Alex Charles who finished 5,4. The bronze medallists at the 2014 470 Junior Worlds Malte Winkel/Matti Cipra of Germany are in third.

A penalty for not wearing a PFD on the race track today added a few points to their score, but nothing the Spanish need to worry about so far. Due to their last minute decision to compete here, the pair are in a charter boat, so whilst familiarisation with different equipment will no doubt see them gain in performance over the coming days, Herp was happy with their speed on the opening day, 'It wasn't easy as the wind was pretty shifty. At some points we were leading and though it would be difficult to maintain, as some boats went more to the extremes than us. It was difficult to control the fleet, but we manged. The second race was harder, and we managed to just get the lead in the final leg over our friends Giacomo and Giulio.'

Hippolyte Matchetti/Sidoine Dantes secured the silver medal at the 420 Worlds which finished on 3 August in Germany and were the top placed team aged 18 and under, so no surprise to see them dominating the fleet here at the Junior Europeans with a 1,3 scoreline. Just one point behind are the USA's Russell Clarida/Forrest Thomas in second place, despite a discretionary penalty from race 1.

The ISAF Youth Worlds bronze medallists and homegrown Polish team of Ewa Romaniuk/Katarzyna Goralska are in third and rank as the top placed girls team. 2013 Junior European bronze medallists Bart Lambriex/Philip Meijer are in fourth overall.

Split into two fleetsthe 420s are reseeded after each day's racing, before the top 54 teams will advance to gold fleet for the 6-race final series, with the remaining 54 teams in silver fleet.
