At the 2012 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship in Dublin, Ireland racing is underway. Australian crews ended day one inside the top 10 in four classes.

A mix of light to moderate conditions between four and 15 knots greeted the 350 crews from 61 countries. Racing was tight throughout the fleets.


The multihull crew of Paul Darmanin and Lucy Copeland are the best placed Australians, with the pair tied for the lead, but second on a count back. Darmanin and Copeland, racing on the Sirena SL16 catamaran, won the opening race of the day before finishing third in race two to be tied on points with their competition from Belgium and three points clear of the third placed Brazilian crew.

After winning today's first race when they led up the opening beat, Darmanin said in the second 'we didn't want to get too excited about it, so we just went through our processes at the start and got away well and came third.'

The 2012 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship is Darmanin’s third, having won gold in 2010, with Copeland making her debut at the event.

West Australian Laser Radial sailor Mark Spearman ended day one third overall in the boy’s fleet following a sixth and a 12th from the first two races. Spearman is four points off the second placed Russian sailor with the regatta leader, from Denmark, a further four in front. It took eight attempts to get a clear start for the Laser Radial boy’s first race with 14 boats eventually disqualified for jumping the start.

The Laser Radial girl’s fleet was much better behaved for the race committee with Australian sailor Louise Evans currently sixth overall. Evans, from Noosa in Queensland, was 14th in the opening race and then seventh in race two to end the day just six points off the podium.

29er sailors Tom Siganto and Joel Turner are the fourth Australian crew to finish day one inside their class’ top 10 with the pair currently eight overall. Siganto and Turner, competing at the first ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship, crossed the line seventh in race one and 12th in race two.

Sam Treharne ended the day just outside the top 10 in the RS:X boy’s fleet, with the Sydney based windsurfer 11th overall, tied on points with the 10th placed Spanish sailor. Treharne is in a tight bunch of sailors on the scoreboard, currently just five points behind sixth place. Fellow windsurfer Annalise Gilbert is 13th in the RS:X girl’s fleet after a 13th and a 14th from Saturday’s two races.

420 sailors Carrie Smith and Ella Clark are competing at the second ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship and are currently 13th in the girl’s fleet. The pair kicked off their regatta with a fourth before finishing 22nd in race two.

In the 420 boy’s fleet Australians Thomas Klemens and James Oliver were 22nd and 11th in the two races on Saturday to be 18th overall.

In the Nations Trophy Australia is currently seventh overall, tied on points with sixth placed Germany. Racing continues in Ireland on Sunday with the 2012 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship continuing until Friday 20 July.
