RS:X Youth World Championships - Action aplenty on day 1 + Video


'2013 RS:X Youth World Championships day 1'    © S&T Communications / J.R. Taylor

After the first day of races at the RS:X Youth World Championships, the Italian sailor Manolo Ponchiero is at the top of the official rankings, preceding Bautista Saubidet Birkener (Argentina) and Mattia Camboni (Italy). Among the women, first place for the Israeli athlete Hadar Heller, followed by Marta Maggetti (Italy) and Bérénice Mege (France). Tomorrow each fleet will sail three more races with the first start scheduled for 11.

Racing, which will be staged until October 26th at the Lega Navale of Civitavecchia, has been marked out by 15 knots of wind (10 in the afternoon ) and high waves. These weather conditions allowed the Race Committee to give the start to nine races (three for each men's fleet and three for the women's fleet), thus respecting today's program.

The winner of the first day of races has been the Italian windsurfer Manolo Pochiero (ITA-16), who won two races and took second place in the third and is now at the top of the overall ranking with only four points. Second position for Bautista Saubidet Birkener (ARG-401) with five points, thanks to two firsts and a third place. Five points also for Mattia Camboni (ITA-88), who conquers the third step of the podium, taking two second places and a victory.

Seventh place for the French athlete Clement Bourgeois (15 point), who is the first of the under-17.
