Laser Radial Youth World Championship
Buffalo Canoe Club

The sun burnt off the sea fog that greeted competitors on the final day of the Laser Radial Youth World Championship on Friday, but failed to produce the regular south westerly thermal in time for the cut off time for starting a race.
Not many were disappointed after 10 excellent races, and the Championship was in the bag for the 17 year old Croatian, Tonko Kuzmanic.

Kuzmanic has developed into an all round sailor after winning the Laser 4.7 European Championship last year. He led this event since the end of the second day and never looked seriously challenged. He will stay on at the Buffalo Canoe Club in Ontario, Canada, to take part in the Laser Radial Open World Championship next week when another 140 sailors, including 40 women, will arrive at the shores of Lake Erie.

Racing for the Laser Radial Open World Championship begins on Monday.
