2021 ILCA 6 Youth World Championships at Circolo Vela Arco - Day 4

by Eric Faust 29 Jul 11:44 PDT 26-31 July 2021

Two races were completed under classic Lake Garda conditions for the first day of Final's Series racing at the 2021 ILCA 6 Youth Worlds.

With clear skies and 12-15 knot winds, the sailors were treated to a beautiful day on the water.

In the girls Gold Fleet a new leader emerged as Czech sailor, Alessia Palanti, posted an impressive 1, 2 on the day to take the overall lead by five points over Ireland's Eve McMahon.

In the boy's division, local favourite Mattia Cesana has moved into the overall lead and currently sits on a nine point lead over USA's Chapman Petersen in second place overall.

Petersen has sailed a very consistent series so far and holds the lowest discard score of the top-ten sailors, which sets him up well for the rest of the championship.

Finals Series racing is scheduled to continue tomorrow under a similar forecast to today's.
