2022 ILCA 4 Youth World Championships at Vilamoura Sailing - Overall

by Katie Olsen 20 Aug 2022 13:17 PDT 13-20 August 2022

No races were sailed on the final day of the 2022 ILCA 4 Youth World Championships, due to lack of wind, which means double gold for Italy.

Nicoló Cassita, U16 sailor, and Ginevra Caracciolo were leading both divisions headed into today, and without any additional races to sail, they were named world champions. Although it was a beautiful warm and sunny day to be in Vilamoura, there was no wind at the time of the first warning signal so the AP flag was hoisted. Around 13:30 both gold fleets were sent out on the water, hopeful for breeze to fill in, but eventually were sent back ashore and the championship was called.

In the boys division, U16 Italian sailor Nicoló Cassitta won gold with 38 net points, Greece's Dionysios Kalpogiannakis claimed silver also with 38 points, and Max Frank of the Netherlands locked in bronze with 48 points.

In the girls division, Italy's Ginevra Caracciolo won gold with 28 net points, U16 Ukranian sailor Alina Shapovalova secured silver with 38 points, and Croatian Petra Marendic won bronze with 50 points.

This ILCA 4 Youth World Championship, hosted by Vilamoura Sailing, was the biggest ever ILCA event with 426 sailors from 42 countries. Vilamoura Sailing served 12,519 liters of water and 17,865 snacks, carried the ILCA trolleys 6,816 times on the slipway, registered 538 sailors and coaches in two days, and typed 23,004 sail numbers. Tomorrow, August 21, will mark the first day of equipment inspection at the 2022 ILCA U21 World Championship.
