ISAF Youth Worlds 2011 - A long, light second day on the water

'Veronica Fanciulli RS:X - ISAF Youth Worlds 2011'    Sime Sokota/ISAF Youth Worlds

The 2011 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship is in its second day of racing in Zadar, Croatia. In the RS:X class, Italian sailor Veronica Fanciulli and Korean Cho Wonwoo won two out of three races each and came second in the other.

Conditions were very light for the second successive day in the regatta, which is the premier event on the World Youth sailing calendar, and has launched many successful Olympic careers.

The Italian leads the RS:X Girls overall on four points but Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games gold medallist Siripon Kaewduang-Ngam is still on touch after finishing third in both races today to remain in second on ten points.

On her day Fanciulli said, 'It is a good day but there isn't much wind. There is only six knots and over the two races we were all pumping out on the course.

'For me it is a good day because I finished first in the first race and came second in the second race of the day. I am really enjoying it here because it is my first ISAF Youth Worlds and I am high up and I hope to continue it tomorrow and afterwards.'

And Fanciulli added, 'I hope tomorrow will be a windier day.'

Meanwhile Audrey Yong (SIN) and Naomi Cohen (ISR) are tied in third place on 14 points each. Yong finished second in race two and sixth in race three and Cohen came seventh in race two and fourth in race three.

Poland's Agnieszka Bilska won race three today but did not finish race two meaning she slips from second overnight to seventh at the close of day two.

Cho Wonwoo (KOR) also enjoyed a successful day in the RS:X Boys winning both of his races to lead the 34 strong fleet. He has a seven point advantage over Louis Giard (FRA) who finished fifth in both races today to sit on 11 points.

On his day Wonwoo said, 'I have trained very hard over the last year for this event. There was a lot of pumping out there today due to the light winds.'

Poland's Pawel Tarnowski finished second and third in his two races today and like Giard has 11 points but trails the Frenchman who won the opening race in Zadar.

It was a long day on the water for the Laser Radial sailors today but the top of the leader board in the Boys fleet is starting to look tight. Oz Adam (ISR) recorded two out of three race wins today, but the Israeli did not finish the fifth race meaning he has to settle for third place on 18 points. Italy's Giovanni Coccoluto had a good day finishing 4-6-3 and leads the fleet with 14 points followed by overnight leader Maxime Mazard (FRA) who has 17 points. Slovenia's Zan Luka Zelko won the other race today and is in fifth place.

In the Laser Radial Girls Paulina Czubachowska (POL) has taken the lead after four races following a good day which saw her finish second, seventh and third. Tiril Bue (NOR) moved from 14th overnight to second after winning race two and coming fifth and eighth in races three and four. Sandy Fauthoux (FRA) won race four and is third on 33 points. Ireland's Sophie Murphy won the other race today but with 50 points is down in 11th.

Brazil's Martin Lowy and Kim Andrade retired after finishing race one in the SL16, since then there has been no stopping the boys from Brazil as they've won four races in a row. The sailors have discarded their 15th place finish and with a perfect score card they lead New Zealand's Tomer Simhony and Ellie Louise Copeland who have a net total of 13 points. Philip Hendrickx and Victor Klaas (BEL) are third on 16 points.

In the 29er Carlos Robles and Florian Trittel (ESP) retained their lead following their 3-18-2 card recorded today. With ten points they remain in control and have a five point advantage over Max Deckers and Annette Duetz (NED) who went 9-1-3 today. Jack Douglas Simpson and Logan Dunning-Beck (NZL) were consistent throughout the day coming fifth, second and third to move up to third on 16 points. The days other race wins went to Josh Franklin and Lewis Brake (AUS) and Antoine Screve and Max Agnese (USA).

Lara Vadlau and Tanja Frank (AUT) won race two and came 11th in race three to move to the top of the 420 Girls Standings on 14 points. But for ISAF Athlete Participation Programme sailors Nikole Barnes and Agustina Barbuto (ISV) they proved that consistency is the aim of the game after coming third in both their races today. They sit second on 17 points. Morgan Kiss and Christina Lewis (USA) are tied on 17 points with the U.S. Virgin Islands girls but with their highest finish of fourth coming in race two they are third.

Only one race took place in the Boy's 420 and it went the way of South Africa's Edie Lathinen and Joshua Rubenstein. The result moves the pair to the top of the leader board. Puerto Rico's overnight leaders Raul Rios and Fernando Monllor came 24th today and slipped down to 11th. Floris van de Werkwn and Laurens van dev Werken (NED) are second on 21 points and Australia's Angus Galloway and Alexander Gough are third on 22 points.
