Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship
Busan, Korea

Two races were completed in all of the events, apart from the boys and girls windsurfer fleets, who completed three races at the 35th Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championships in Busan, Korea.
The wind conditions out on the water today were more consistent for the sailors, south-westerly 5-10 knots.

Another two races in the Laser Radial fleet, sees Paige RAILEY consolidate her lead and extend her points margin. An OCS mishap for the overnight second placed Stephanie ROSSE (SUI), drops her down significantly from her opening day form. And up into third for Arantza GUMUCIO (CHI), who had a superb second place, followed by a twelve.

In Busan with the help of the ISAF Athlete Participation Programme are the following sailors in the Laser Radial fleet:

Name Nation Age
Alyson MYERS BAH 15
Tania ZIMMERMAN PER 16
Beth GERTRUDE SEY 16
Phillipa BAER RSA 17

Supported by onsite coach Jim SALTONSTALL (GBR) these sailors will be benefiting significantly from the daily briefings and post-race analysis provided by Jim. Whilst sharing his coaching skills with all the sailors at the Championship, Jim is focusing on the Athlete Participation Programme sailors. Commenting on her experience so far Alyson MYERS (BAH) said, 'After the races and dinner, we had a meeting with Jim SALTONSTALL to discuss today's races. He had filmed us sailing and was giving us helpful advice and tips. Jim is very knowledgeable and has helped us quite a bit. Some of the techniques we were using were outdated and he let us know what else to do. For example, our traveler tension in light air was incorrect. We had been sailing with a loose traveler but what is needed in light air is a tight traveler. Personally, I am learning a lot and meeting many new people. To me, this has been a great start to the regatta.'

Another bullet to their credit propels Wataru SAITO and Hiroto YOSHINAGA (JPN) into the lead after five races. Despite a bullet in today's opening race four, overnight leaders Tomas SILVA and Francisco GOMES suffered a DSQ in race 5, which saw them tumbling down the leaderboard. When the discard comes into play tomorrow, expect to see the Singaporean duo of Wee Chin TEO and Terence KOH move up to the challenge.

The same four in the top four after today's racing, the only difference being the swap between first and second with Evan WALKER and Kyle LANGFORD now holding the lead.
