Two races were completed on Monday in each fleet at the 2022 ILCA 4 Youth World Championships, hosted by Vilamoura Sailing. All 426 boats launched efficiently in under 45 minutes for a smooth start to the day.

The venue produced champagne sailing conditions, with 14-20 knots of wind building throughout the afternoon. The most notable performance today came from the Italian sailing team, which has sailors leading both divisions after the first day of the world championship.

In the boys division, Italian Massimiliano Antoniazzi leads the way after sailing two bullets in the green fleet. Israel's Omer Vered Vilenchik and Greece's Panagiotis Spanos, each sailed a first- and second-place finish in the red fleet to sit in second and third overall.

In the girls division, team Italy continues to lead. Maria Vittoria Arseni and Ginevra Caracciolo hold first and second after today's races. Arseni, like Antoniazzi, scored two bullets to start the championship at the top. Caracciolo had two top-three finishes today. In third overall is Annemijn Algra from the Netherlands, tied with Slovenia's Alenka Valencic with six points.

All six fleets were back ashore by 18:00. Two races are scheduled for Tuesday, with the first warning signal at 14:00. For results and more event information, see
