Laser Radial Youth World Championships 2012 – Day 3

'Maxime Jonker (NED) and Onur Ozkaya (Turkey) - Laser Radial Youth Worlds 2012 Brisbane Australia'    Mike Kenyon    Click Here to view large photo

There were two races sailed yesterday at the 2012 Laser Radial Youth World Championships being staged from the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron in Brisbane, Australia.

Tough conditions for the sailors with very light and shifty conditions.


Maxime Jonker (NED), the 2011 Laser Radial Under 17 World Champion and 2011 4.7 European champion retained her lead in the Under 19 Girls.

An eighth in race 2 is Jonker’s current drop in an otherwise consistent performance (1, 1, 3). Jonker leads Australian sailor Madison Kennedy, who had an excellent 2,1 day, by seven points with Daphne Van der Vaart (NED), the silver medalist at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in 2010, third.

In the Under 17 Girls Anna Philip (AUS) leads from Louise Evans (AUS) with Lindsey Baab (USA) third on count back.

An impressive performance from Onur Ozkaya (Turkey) who tops the Laser Radial Youth Boys Overall. With two first places and a second, his first race result (12th) is his current drop.

Harris Mavrogeorgis (Greece) is five points behind, with early overall leader Benoit Lagneux (SUI) dropping back to third, one point behind Mavrogeorgis.

Benoit Lagneux leads the Under 17 Boys fleet by seven points, ahead of Russian sailor Maxim Nikolaev. Sebastian Kalafarski from Poland is third, a further ten points behind Nikolaev.

Principal Race Officer Kevin Wilson was shaking his head as he came ashore. He said 'A tough day for sailors and race officials - much lighter than forecast. PredictWind and Sea Breeze forecast it out of west south west from anything up to about 15 knots and we ended up with 4-6 knots from the north east and it stayed there all day.

'Blue skies and a light teasing north easterly breeze. The course was set up at 040 and the breeze was varying between 4.5 to 6 knots but we were patient and we managed to get two races away.

'The breeze didn’t have vary much but there were places across the course were the breeze faded and came back and faded.

‘Of course they were sailing into the current because it was out of the north east and it was a flooding tide so sailors were having to shift track. Going upwind they were going into the current and downwind they were coming back with it.

‘It was a frustrating day for the race management and probably a frustrating day for the competitors.

‘The current was significant in the light conditions. Some sailors went the wrong way in the current and were burned. Others hit marks because of the current. The jury have had a pretty easy time because they haven’t had any visitors this year.

‘Tomorrow we have three races scheduled to start at midday and the forecast is still showing out of the west south west at the moment, but the race committee is pretty wary of that. We are waiting to see what we have in the morning.'
