ISAF Youth Worlds: Light winds test NZers on Opening Day

Racing got underway overnight in Zadar, Croatia on day one of the 41st Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship 2011 where the twelve kiwi sailors of the 2011 NZL Yachting Trust Youth Team are up against their counterparts from around the world.

'The wind was very light,' reports Team Manager, Ian Neely. 'Many races were raced in one to five knots of breeze which made it tough going for everyone – consistency in today’s conditions was pretty elusive.'

It was New Zealand’s multihull representatives, Tomer Simhony and Ellie Copeland, who managed two good results on the opening day of the week long regatta claiming the win in the very first race in the SL16 event. This is an open class, entries featuring either two boys or a mixed gender crew on the boat.

Simhony and Copeland finished third in the second race of the day and hold second place overall on the leader-board with a point-score of 4pts lost under the low score system. Brazil’s Martin Lowy and Kim Andrade were second and then first in last night’s two races to lead the fleet by just one point from the NZers at the end of the first day.

Two more among the NZL Yachting Trust Youth Team are within the top eight in their event at this early stage in the series - Girls Windsurfer (RS:X), Georgia Schofield, and Girls Doublehanded (420) crew Verity Judge and Gemma Jones. In both of these classes (as well as the Girls Singlehander (Laser Radial) and Boys Windsurfer (RS:X) just one race was possible in the light breeze the day produced, which faded as time passed.

Windsurfer, Schofield placed fifth in her race to lie fifth overall, while double-handers Jones and Judge were eighth which also reflects directly on their leader-board.

Jack Simpson and Logan Dunning-Beck sailing in the Open Skiff (29er), started with a strong opening race placing second, but couldn’t repeat this in Race 2 where they finished 22nd. The pair is in 11th place overall going into the second day of racing.

Standings for all the NZL Sailing Team after day one are listed below. Neely says that similar conditions are forecast for Day 2 of the regatta, although more wind may appear following that.

This prestigious youth regatta has attracted a total of 349 sailors from 52 countries to the city of Zadar, in Croatia on the Adriatic Sea. The regatta schedule includes six race days and one reserve day (Tuesday 12th July) with a total of twelve races possible in each of the ten classes if conditions are favourable. Medals will be decided on the final day of competition, Friday 15th July, in Zadar.
