Canadians Move up the Scoreboard at Youth Worlds!

Thursday, December 14th 2017 - Sanya, China

Day 4 of racing at the Youth Sailing World Championships was another tricky day for all fleets.

Again, the breeze in Sanya Bay was an easterly ranging from 6- 12 knots bringing shifty and puffy conditions which have become the staple of this event.

However that did not stop the Canadian team from hitting the water at 100% and fighting for gains on every leg of every race. Their hard work paid off with everyone team member finishing the day with a top 10 finish, and sisters Helen and Teddy Horangic scoring another bullet in the Nacra fleet. The Horangic sister now sit in 8th overall.

In the Radial fleets, Clara Gravely moved up 7 spots to 16th scoring a 2nd in Race 7 in the Radial Girls fleet.

In the Radial Boys fleet Ryan Anderson scored a 7th and 5th moving him up 7 spots to 17th overall.

In the 29er fleet, brothers Sam and Will Bonin are sitting in 16th after scoring a 10, 11 and 4 in today’s racing.

Youth Worlds veteran 420 team Georgia Lewin-LaFrance and Madeline Gillis stay sitting in 8th, scoring a 5th in the last race of the day.

Pat Wilson and Arie Moffat are sitting in 12th in thr 420 Boys fleet where points are tight up the scoreboard.
