Key figures and information on the championships’ first day:

  • A total of 8 legs
  • Irregular gusty wind between 3 and 20 knots
  • 99 teams
  • 28 countries

The title chase, the title races has begun…

The competitors are ready so are the boats, all the conditions are set for these Youth Worlds, except for Aeolus who was kind of shy in the morning, but grew more confident by 1pm, which enabled the competitors to sail with ultimate conditions.

The fights have begun on this first day at the Youth Worlds. After more than a 2-hour delay because of the lack of wind, the 49ers were the first ones to set sail at about 1pm, while the 49ers FX and the Nacra17 were waiting for their signal.

The 49ers were divided in 2 fleets, they raced 2 legs per fleet with an irregular and fluctuating south-easterly wind, from 3 to 17 knots.

At about 3pm their day was done, they went back ashore, it was time for the 49erFX and Nacra17. Then the wind got stronger to stabilize between 10 and 15 knots, and south-southwesterly. All together 2 laps were run for each class.

With a light wind all 3 series met and familiarized with this future Olympic scene. As for the French teams they managed to play their best and are ranked 1st and 3rd in the 49ers category.

This first day has been promising, the fleet appears to be relatively compact, all competitors are at their best.

Today’s interview:

We have met Enzo Lobry, competitors from the YCPR (organizing club), currently in 3rd position…

“This position is really something positive for our team. Louis, my helmsman, and I knew that sailing here would be a real asset for us, we know the bay like the back of our hand, but we hadn’t even dreamed of being 3rd at the end of the first day, this is really promising! We will keep being at the front and hopefully we will do our best throughout the regatta.”

The Olympic sailing world reconvenes next week on the Spanish island of Mallorca, where we will see over 1,200 athletes competing across the ten Olympic classes at the annual Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia Iberostar regatta, this year celebrating its 50th anniversary. The Olympic regatta held on the Bay of Palma marks the beginning of the 2019 European season for the 49er, 49erFX and Nacra17. While this is not an Olympic selection regatta, the Trofeo Princesa Sofia is always an important event in every sailors calendar. Many teams will have been away from international competition since late in 2018, or in the past few months competed in only the Miami World Series event in light and tricky conditions. The Trofeo Princesa Sofia regatta is an early performance indicator for the season ahead, allowing teams to get back into Olympic level competition prior to the rigorous European schedule. This is made all the more important given many teams are pushing for national selection ahead the Tokyo 2020 games, to be sailed in Enoshima Japan in late July next year. Trofeo Princesa Sofia is an event that comes without the added pressure often associated with the World Series, European or World Championship events. Sailors and spectators can expect action packed class racing in one of the best sailing venues the world has to offer.
