Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship 2006

The two crews who will compete in the double-handed dinghy events for the US Youth World Team were decided over the weekend at the Club 420 Midwinters, hosted by the US Sailing Centre in Martin County, Florida. 98 boats took to the water to battle for a place at the 2006 Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship, taking place in Weymouth, Great Britain from the 12-21 July.

The results indicate that the racing was tight throughout the three-day event, but in the end it is Mike MENNINGER and Nick MARTIN for the boys and Emily DELLENBAUGH and Briana PROVANCHA for the girls who secured their spot on the Team.

For MARTIN and PROVANCHA this will be their second consecutive trip to the ISAF Youth Worlds, each went last year with a different skipper, who this year aged out for the competition.

Along with Adam ROBERTS, MARTIN narrowly missed out on a bronze medal in Busan, Korea, finishing just four points behind the third placed British pair of Tom MALINDINE and James CLARK. PROVANCHA meanwhile was, along with skipper Megan MAGILL, one of the US success stories of the Championship, taking the silver medal in the Girls' 420 behind the dominant French pairing of Marie LUMEAU and Claire BOSSARD.

Other Team Members

Already qualified in the US Youth World Team are Multihull Open Hobie 16 entrants Evan MILLER and Kyler HAST and Single-handed dinghy girls Laser Radial entrant Stephanie ROBLE, who qualified at the U.S. Youth Multihull Championship and U.S. Junior Women's Single-Handed Championship respectively.

Qualifying events for the Single-handed dinghy boys Laser and Windsurfer boys and girls RS:X events are set to take place later in the year.

The USA team in Busan put in one of their best displays ever at the ISAF Youth Worlds, and, despite only entering five out of the seven events, came away with fourth position in the Volvo Trophy standing for the best performing nation, a massive improvement on the ninth they secured in Gdynia, Poland in 2004.
