Sail-World.com : Nanjing Youth Olympic Games: Young sailors begin racing on Lake Jinniu
Nanjing Youth Olympic Games: Young sailors begin racing on Lake Jinniu

'Techno 293 Boys Fleet'    ISAF ©

The four Techno 293 and Byte CII fleets played to a crowd of 2,000 at the Youth Olympic Games as racing commenced on Lake Jinniu in Nanjing, China.

Sailing tickets have completely sold out for the Youth Olympic Sailing Competition and with a full view of Race Area A the crowd witnessed three Techno 293 Boys and Girls races and a single Byte CII race towards the end of the day.

In a north east breeze blowing between 5-6 knots the Techno 293 completed their schedule with Francisco Saubidet Birkner (ARG) leading the boys and Lucie Pianazza (FRA) in charge in the girls.

The Byte CII fleets started the day on Race Area B with a tricky breeze making life difficult for the Race Committee. They managed to complete one race before moving to Race Area A following the windsurfers completing their schedule. Nonetheless two out of three scheduled races were completed and Pedro Correa (BRA) tops the tree in the male fleet whilst Alexandra Dahlberg (FIN) has the advantage in the girls.

Argentina's Francisco Saubidet Birkner was the stand out performer of the day in the Techno 293 fleet as he notched up two bullets and a sixth to take the lead.

Dutch racer Lars van Someren opened the day up by taking the first bullet in front of 2,000 paying spectators. With clean air in his sail he led Brazil's Daniel Pereira and never looked threatened as the race played out, 'It was quite good. At the start I was the only one who found the right shift which put me quite far ahead of everybody so the rest of the race was a sail to the finish.'

If sailing at the Youth Olympic Games wasn't an amazing experience in its own right, a sell-out spectator stand increased the 'wow factor' just a little bit more, 'It's like the first time there's a crowd in our windsurfing,' said van Someren. 'The stand is like packed full. It's a lot of fun. It's amazing. We sailed by after the race and everybody was cheering and everything. I saw my dad jumping up and down.'

Van Someren came through with a fourth in the second race but fell to tenth in the third and final race of the day. Saubidet Birkner holds top spot on eight points with Japan's Kensei Ikeda second on 12 points. Van Someren is third on 15 points.

Consistency was key on the Techno 293 race course and France's Lucie Pianazza was the steadiest performer on the track.

Pianazza leads on nine points and explained her day, 'It was a little difficult but I was second for the first race and then third and fourth. The wind is difficult to see but I think that I did the best day I could do.'

Ahead of their races the girls checked in with the crowd giving them smiles and waves and Pianazza thoroughly enjoyed playing to the spectators, 'There was a lot of people. It was wonderful and it is really great to see everyone. I sailed just in front of them and it was really good. It's a very impressive organisation and it's great with all the bonds between the sailors. There were a lot of people to see sailing and it's a very big event.'

The crowd had something to cheer about on the final race of the day as host nation sailor Linli Wu claimed the final bullet of the day. The Chinese sailor took a fourth and a seventh in the races prior and sits second overall. Russia's Mariam Sekhposyan is in third, tied on 12 points with the Chinese racer.

Alexandra Dahlberg (FIN), Byte CII -  ISAF ©  

The biggest smile in the Girls Byte CII fleet came from Finland's Alexandra Dahberg and with good reason as well. The Finnish sailor took a pair of bullets and with a smile from ear to ear she was visibly delighted with the day, 'I did pretty well, better than I expected with two wins so I couldn't be any happier,' giggled the Finnish racer. 'It was really successful today. My speed was great and I had good tactics so it just went well together.

'Tomorrow is totally new and I am going to take everything to zero and just do my best.'

On the Youth Olympic Games Dahlberg added, 'It's been amazing; the place is amazing and the people and everything. It's a good experience. The Opening Ceremony was awesome, it was spectacular. I like that there are people all around the world in different sports. It's totally different and new experience.'

Singapore's Samantha Yom is second overall on seven points with The Netherlands Odile van Aanholt sitting third.

Pedro Correa (BRA) was strong in the light breeze and opened up the competition with a race victory. A fourth followed in the second race and he has a one point advantage over Malaysia's Asri Azman.

'It was quite difficult because we had shifty wind and light wind and the starts were not easy,' explained Correa. 'I was always in the top five in the first race and then I saw a big gust and then I went to that and got distance and then it was just stay at the front until the finish.

'I did pretty well today but I can't be happy and I need to stay focused because there are a lot more races.'

Asri Azman (MAS) took the second race victory and is a point behind in second. Peru's Angello Giuria is third overall.

Racing resumes on Tuesday 19 August at 11:00 local time with three races scheduled for the Byte CII fleets and two for the Techno 293 fleets.

The four YOG Sailing events are:

Boy's Windsurfer - Techno 293
Girl's Windsurfer - Techno 293
Boy's One Person Dinghy - Byte CII
Girl's One Persona Dinghy - Byte CII

The YOG Sailing Competition will consist of an opening series and final race. The format will be fleet racing but slalom racing may be run for the Boy's and Girl's Windsurfers if the weather conditions are suitable.
