The Sail First ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships on now in Limassol, Cyprus has passed the mid way mark and all five of the 2013 NZL Yachting Trust Youth Team remain in the top six places in their fleets.

The best placed include Isaac McHardie (Hamilton Yacht Club/RAYC) and Micah Wilkinson (Ngaroto Sailing Club/RAYC) who continue to dominate in the SL16 multihull, while Markus Somerville and Jack Simpson (Wakatere Boating Club) had a great day on the water climbing to third overall in the 29er skiff.

The multi fleet sailed three races, Isaac and Micah taking two race wins and a seventh on day three. Their lead has extended to fourteen points over closest rivals the Australian representatives, and the kiwis are now in a very strong position going into the penultimate day of the five day long regatta.

'We’re pretty happy with how everything’s going, it’s been awesome,' said the pair immediately after racing. 'We were looking for top three finishes and we’re stoked with our results at the moment. We’re normally 29er sailors but after a couple of months in the cat we’re pretty happy with how things are going.'

Ahead of the Sail First ISAF Youth Worlds the pair took in the SL16 Worlds to fine tune their preparations and finished sixth, 'We’ve been sailing cats since February,' said Wilkinson, 'We learned heaps in France which was awesome and brought that into here and we are getting some good results.'

In the 29er Markus Somerville and Jack Simpson (Wakatere Boating Club) have moved up the ladder from fifth to third overall after a 3, 3, 4 on the water today putting them within two points of the Argentineans in second place.

Laser Radial sailor Andrew McKenzie has had his best day of the regatta yet and further improves his standing in the 56 boat fleet up to fifth position at the end of day three.

Andrew reports; 'It was good to have a day where I got some consistent results on the board.'

In the 420 Sam Barnett and Zak Merton (Tauranga Yacht & Powerboat Club) are in fifth place in the boy’s fleet while Olivia Mackay and Abby Goodwin (Napier Sailing Club) hold sixth place in the girl’s.

The overall performance of the 2013 NZL Yachting Trust Youth Team currently places them third in the standings for the Nations Trophy behind Spain and Italy.

Coach Jim Maloney is enjoying the venue and report, 'The sailing has been pretty good and has made for some great viewing from the coach boats. The Cyprus coffee is awesome, anyone who knows me knows I like my coffee and after 16 hour days, what more can I say.'

Racing resumes tomorrow for the penultimate day of the regatta.
