Youth Championships - Light Start for Sailors
The Sail Canada Youth Championships at CORK International kicked off today in Kingston! Portsmouth Olympic Harbour is hopping with 413 sailors and 280 boats taking part, supported by over 70 coaches.
Day one of racing brought light air and sunny skies. All fleets were on the water for a start time of 12 noon with winds South East 5 – 10 knots. The wind dropped as the afternoon continued with all fleets being sent in just before 4pm.
The Laser and 4.7 fleets saw the most action with 2 races each, the Radial, 420 and 29er fleets had one race each.
Racing continues Tuesday with 3 races scheduled for all fleets, except the 29ers who have 4 scheduled. Large numbers in the Radial and 420 fleets will require a two day qualifying series, followed by a two day final series for each.
Sail Canada Development Coach Chris Cook will be on the water and delivering sailor debriefs at the end of each day, providing a great opportunity for sailor and coach development throughout the event.
Stay tuned throughout the week!
