U.S. Youth Sailing Championships - Light and shifty breeze on day 2


'U.S. Youth Sailing Championships'    Carrie Robertson Meyer
Wednesday morning, at the U.S. Youth Sailing Championships, sailors were challenged to make the transition to light and shifty breeze on Corpus Christi Bay .

The strong summer sea breeze created inconsistent wind shifts in the morning for Race one. Heavier sailors flourished on Tuesday, while lighter sailors prospered this morning. However, the wind picked up considerably in the afternoon and most of Tuesday’s leaders held their ground.

This four-day US Sailing National Championship, hosted by Corpus Christi Yacht Club, features sailors competing in seven classes: 29er, Club 420, Formula 16, International 420, Laser, Laser Radial and RS:X. The championship will serve as a mandatory qualification event for the 2014 U.S. Youth Worlds Team.

This morning, many sailors reflected on Tuesday’s Olympic Sailing Night. Speakers included U.S. Olympic Sailing Managing Director Josh Adams, 2008 Olympian and Youth Development Advisor Andrew Campbell, a past winner of this event (2000, ’01, ’02), and Olympic Coach and Youth Development Director Leandro Spina.

F16 multihull skipper Ravi Parent (Bradenton, Fla.) discussed his takeaways from the presentation. 'I learned that there are many pathways and opportunities for me to take my sailing to the Olympic level. It's really exciting to know that US Sailing is doing so much to put this in place for us.'

'They are trying to grow Olympic sailing by starting with the US Sailing Development Team program,' mentioned Club 420 skipper Elena VandenBerg (Annapolis, Md.).

Club 420 skipper Nicholas Sertl (Rochester, N.Y.) said, 'It’s good to know all the different options I have, because I'm not really sure what direction I want to go in. I just want to experiment to see what I like the best.' Sertl is the son of Cory Sertl, who was an alternate member of the 1988 U.S. Olympic Sailing Team.

Today’s Racing Notes:
So far this week, Sertl and crew Elizabeth Pemberton (Osterville, Mass.) have made their mark in the C420. The duo had another strong day on the water despite the lighter wind. They will take a 14 point lead into Thursday over Scott Sinks (San Diego, Calif.) and Storm Brown (San Diego, Calif.

'I like having a crew on board, and I'm too big to be a skipper in most classes. The Club 420 allows me to do that,' explained Sertl.

Top 3
1.Nicholas Sertl/Elizabeth Pemberton: 1-3-4-1-2-[6]-3- ; 14
2.Scott Sinks/Storm Brown: 9-1-8-3-5-2-[33/OCS]- ; 28
3.Max Simmons/Riley Legault: [11]-2-2-6-10-9-2- ; 31

The top five sailors are within 10 points in the Laser fleet. Stephen Long (Santa Barbara, Calif.) has a four point lead after three more races in the closely contested Laser fleet. Mitchell Kiss (Holland, Mich.) and Richard Didham (San Diego, Calif.) are in a tie for second. Didham catapulted into a tie for second after winning the last two races of the day.

Kiss compared the conditions over the past two days. 'Yesterday there was a lot of breeze and it was a struggle upwind, but I found my groove downwind and passed some boats. In the next few days I'm going to work on my upwind speed, so I can capitalize on the downwinds,' he said.

Kiss elaborated on why he likes the physicality of the Laser. 'I like to feel tired after sailing and to work as hard as you possibly can, knowing that every inch matters. It's all up to you and that's what I like about the Laser.'

Top 3
1.Stephen Long: 2-1-3-3-[5]-3-2- ; 14
2.Richard Didham: 3-6-1-[9]-6-1-1- ; 18T
3.Mitchell Kiss: 5-2-2-4-2-[12/OCS]-3- ; 18T

Ravi Parent (Bradenton, Fla.) and Nico Schultz (Sarasota, Fla.) are in complete control through nine races in the F16 multihull races. Parent and Schultz won all five races this afternoon and lead by 16 over Sophia Schultz (Sarasota, Fla.), Nico’s sister, and Joseph Bello (Navarre, Fla.).

'Yesterday wasn't what we expected,' explained Parent. 'We thought it would be a lighter start to the day, but it built up quickly. We need to push it in spots this week and make gains when we can.'

Parent has become a big fan of multihull sailing. 'I like going fast and I like the sensation of flying a hull. It's something that you don't really experience in other boats,' he said.

Top 3
1.Ravi Parent/Nico Schultz: [6]-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1- ; 8

Wade Waddell (Palm Beach, Fla.) and Henry Fernberger (New York, N.Y.) broke their tie with Jack Parkin (Riverside, Conn.) and crew Florian Eenkema van Dijk (Darien, Conn.) and lead by four in the I420 fleet.

3.Russell Clarida/Finn Mundinger: 6-2-3-2-[9]-5-3- ; 21

After winning all four races Tuesday, Luke Muller finished second, third, and second today to keep a five point lead through seven races in the Radial fleet over Malcolm Lamphere (Lake Forest, Ill.). Lamphere won two races today.

They won three of five races today. Quinn Wilson (Ojai, Calif.) and Riley Gibbs (Long Beach, Calif.) won a pair of races today to pull into second place.
