Lightning Youth World Championship - Final day

'2014 Champions - BRA Team Rondina - 2014 International Lightning Class Association Youth World Championship'    International Lightning Class Association

2014 International Lightning Class Youth World Championship - On the final day of racing 'typical' Buffalo Canoe Club weather prevailed. PRO Rob Ruhlman reported 'winds were steady from 240 - 230 and increased as the day went on from six –seven to fifteen - sixteen knots.' Three races were completed to determine the 2014 Lightning Youth World Champions - Congratulations to the Brazilian Team of Felipe Rondina, Jose Afonso Hackerott and Thomas Sylvestre for winning the final race to secure the top spot.

Going in to the day, the US Team of Jonathan Lutz, Alexandra Jones and Nicholas Sertl were ahead of the Brazilian Team by four points. By the final race today, the Brazilian Team held a one point advantage over Team Lutz because a discard race was now in play. At the first windward mark, Rondina was just ahead of Lutz. At the second weather mark, Lutz had passed Rondina but still needed to put a boat between them for the win. A good battle was fought and in the end the Team from Brazil took the bullet to clinch the title.

Cristobal Molina Lorca, Jens Kuhlenthal Pfeffer and Pedro Andres Vera Carrera from Chile were just one point behind them going into the last race. The Chileans were able to secure fifth place to finish third overall with 24 points. Teams Huyard and Jones tied for fourth with 25 points - Huyard won the tie breaker because she had won Race five.
