RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships - Mixed bag on day 5

On day five of the 2012 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships, it took time for the light and flukey wind to settle during morning but when it did, two good races in both fleets were run. Neomi Cohen [ISR] was on fire posting two bullets to snatch third spot back from Shahar Tibi [ISR] who is celebrating her 15th birthday today.

Shahar didn't have a good day on the water but she can still make her presence felt in the medal race tomorrow. She's has to beat Neomi by three places to take the bronze. Not an insurmountable task when you throw Jeanne Dantes [FRA] and Saskia Sill [GBR] in to the mix.

Saskia extended her lead to four points today after Jeanne released the pressure a little but this Youth World Championship is far from decided with a four way shoot out is in prospect.

Factoid: There are 4 U17s in the Youth women's top 10 and five countries... all European

Over in the Youth Men's fleet, Pawel Tarnowski [POL] was not on sparkling form for once. A 10 and a 14 [His second discard] meant he let some air out of his overnight 18 point cushion but he still looks comfortable for a 'win' tomorrow [barring irrational disasters, of course].

It was Kieran Martin [GBR] and Yann Dupont [FRA] who took advantage of the light air to close up the points. Kieran has retaken third spot and will have his eyes firmly focused on Martin's second spot overall. There are five points in it tonight so it is doable.

Mattia Camboni, the Italian prodigy, put in a shocker -23- in race 12 but followed up with a six in race 13 so may still make the podium if he can mix it with the Kieran and Martin in the medal race scheduled to start at 1130hrs in what is forecast to be equally light winds.

Factoid: There are athletes from seven countries and three continents represented in the Youth Men's top 10.

Note: Negotiations to stage the 2013 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships in Civitavecchia just north of Rome are well under way. The chosen date is the last week of October.

The 2013 RS:X Youth European Windsurfing Championships will take place in Brest, France in the first week of July.
