RS:X Youth World Championship
Civitavecchia, Italy

Mattia Camboni (men) and Marta Maggetti (women) are the new RS:X Youth World Champions: the silver went to Israel.
A perfect final at the Lega Navale Civitavecchia, with the 2013 Enel RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships ending with an Italian double win. Protagonists Mattia Camboni and Marta Maggetti, the new RS:X Class Youth World Champions.

In the men's class, the local athlete Camboni (ITA), administered an advantage of fifteen points finishing the Medal Race behind the Russian Evgeny Ayvazyan (RUS), but ahead of Mayan Rafic (ISR), his closest competitor. The final results crown the Italian athlete as the king of the Under 19 fleet with only 21 points, 17 less than Rafic, who earned the silver with 38 points.

"Winning here," declared Mattia Camboni at the end of the race "Was a dream more than a goal, but I made it. Everything went my way, even luck, and that never hurts to win. Now I want to enjoy the day!"

The women's class had a final confrontation between Marta Maggetti (ITA) and Hadar Hellar (ISR): the young Israeli found herself in a corner at the start with an OCS that proved fatal to her ranking. Maggetti, second throughout the series, held tight and today's second place is more than enough to overtake her rival and earn the top position in the rankings with 36 points, becoming the new RS:X Youth World Champion.

"I'm so happy," said Marta Maggetti after the race, "We knew that the only chance we had was to push on the line to force my adversary to make a mistake. What a special day!"

With 43 points, a silver medal is all that Hadar Heller will take home. Maelle Guilbaud (FRA) took third, both in the Medal Race and the overall ranking, with 61 points.

Alessandra Sensini, the Italian Sailing Federation's Youth Director was enthusiastic, "A great result for the Federation, the Class and for Italy: we can add another Club to our long list of expert organizers."

In the U17 male classification the victory went to Belarus Mikita Tsirkun with second and third places taken by two French sailors Oel Pouliquen and Adrien Mestre.

In the U17 female classification gold medal for the Russian Stefania Elfutina, silver to British Emma Wilson and bronze to Berenice Mege from France.
