Light wind conditions in Zadar call for maximum concentration - ISAF Youth Worlds 2011 Sime Sokota/ISAF Youth Worlds
ISAF Youth Worlds 2011 in Zadar, Croatia has resulted in a victory for Maxime Mazard (FRA) who continues to lead the Laser Radial Boys.

Mazard finished 24th in race eight before discarding his 38th place finish in race nine. Mazard's 12 point lead from the third day has been reduced to five with Giovanni Coccoluto hot on his heels on 79 points.

But Coccoluto also struggled in breezier conditions in Zadar posting a 21st and 19th place finish. Israel's Oz Adam recorded an eighth place finish in race eight but finished 42nd in race nine and after discarding his DNF in race five he slips down to third overall on 83 points.

Zan-Luka Zelko (SLO) moved into contention for a medal today after claiming a bullet in race eight and coming tenth in race nine to sit fourth on 91 points. The race nine bullet went the way of ISAF Athlete Participation Programme sailor Ramon Gonzalez (PUR). The Puerto Rican sailor has 144 points to his name and is 17th overall.

In the Laser Radial Girls Poland's Paulina Czubachowska continues to lead the way on 50 points after nine races. But surprisingly she picked up her first bullet in race nine after posting an 18th place finish in race eight. But the Polish sailor has shown consistency which has been key.

Manami Doi (JPN), in second, had a good day finishing 3-5 and moves into second place on 54 points. And Tiril Bue (NOR) had a better day following a bullet in race eight and a third place finish in race nine. The Norwegian is third on 57 points.

The top of the 420 Girls is very tight with just six points separating the top three with three races remaining. Lara Vadlau and Tanja Frank (AUT) continue to lead the way after finishing with a bullet and third place today. But America's Morgan Kiss and Christina Lewis traded blows after the Austrians posted the same race results. But the Austrians are at the top of the leader board on 17 points with the Americans five points behind. Nikole Barnes and Agustina Barbuto trail the Austrians by six points in third.



The 420 Boys sailed three races today and finished at 19:30 local time. And it was a great day for Japan's Daichi Mototsu and Yuki Hino who came fourth twice and ninth in the other to move ahead of Jordi Xammer and Alex Claville (ESP) at the top of the leader board. The Spaniards finished fourteenth twice today but with a bullet in the final race of the day they will some momentum into the penultimate day.

Australia's Angus Galloway and Alexander Gough and France's Guillaume Pirouelle and Valentin Sipan are locked on 61 points apiece. But the Australians take the final podium place following their bullet in race five.

Four protests were put forward following race eight so it will be a late night for the Jury members in Zadar.

Martin Lowy and Kim Andrade continued their dominance in the SL16 by winning their eighth consecutive race in a row. With eight points they have a gigantic 26 point lead with three races remaining in the championship. The Brazilians are in great form and with a huge lead the gold medal is almost theirs. The rest of the fleet will fight it out for the bronze and silver. Just nine points separate second and seventh place so it should be an interesting climax.

Spain's Carlos Robles and Florian Trittel have extended their lead in the 29er to 12 points after finishing fifth and fourth in today's racing. Australia's Josh Franklin and Lewis Brake had a consistent day finishing second in both races to move up to second overall. Antoine Screve and Max Agnese (USA) finished sixth and recorded a bullet in race nine to retain third place.


The top of the RS:X Boys and Girls is looking interesting with just one point separating Veronica Fanciulli (ITA) and Siripon Kaewduang-Ngam (THA) in the Girls fleet. And four points split Cho Wonwoo (KOR) and Mateo Sanz (ESP) in the Boys.

Fanciulli finished 3-4 today to move onto 15 points and Kaewduang-Ngam came second in race seven before discarding her fifth place finish in race eight. Naomi Cohen won race eight today and is second on 22 points. Agnieszka Bilska won the days other race and is fourth on 28 points.

And in the RS:X Boys Cho Wonwoo once again put in a consistent display out on the water. He came seventh in race seven and second in race eight. He leads on 18 points. Sanz discarded his 13th place in race seven before bouncing back with a fourth in race eight. The Spaniard is second on 22 points.

Sam Sills (GBR) won race seven today and is sixth overall on 55 points and the days other race win went to Pawel Tarnowski (POL) who is third on 30 points.

The 420 Boys are still out on the race course for their third race of the day.

Racing is set to commence at 12:00 local time tomorrow with three races scheduled for the RS:X Boys and Girls and two races scheduled in the 29er, 420, SL16 and Laser Radial.
