Laser Radial Youth World Championship
Buffalo Canoe Club, Ontario

For the first day of the final series Lake Erie produced some of the best sailing conditions of the week. A southwesterly wind of 8 knots built throughout the day, peaking at 18 knots before dropping back to 15 knots.
As expected the division of the fleet into Gold, Silver and Bronze gave much closer racing and increased pressure on the starts, giving rise to recalls in all fleets in both the races sailed.

The overall leader board remains the same, with Croatian Kuzmanic still in front of Scott GBR. However both these two had to battle hard for their placings. For the remaining 4 races they will be closely watching Great Britain's Nick Thompson, who has suddenly found top gear and jumped from 17th to 7th overall, after winning both of the gold fleet races.

With thunderstorms forecast for Day 5 and a further discard to come into the scores after 10 races, the Championship is still open.
