Snipe Junior World Championship
Moscow

Light winds of 6-10 knots greeted the sailors at the championship both Friday and Saturday, creating calm like conditions with tricky shifts.
Mikee ANDERSON-MITTERLING and Graham BIEHL of the USA won two races on Friday, securing their Snipe Junior World Champions title with a race to spare in Moscow. They did not have to sail the final race on Saturday.

The Argentine team of Adolfo BENAVIDES and Federico PIERSON took second place with Russia's Maxim KUZMIN and Alexander SHIROKOV finishing third. The USA's Adam and Melanie Roberts sailed a 3-2-1 series the final two days to move them into fifth overall.

The top two finishers of the Junior Worlds qualify for the 2005 Worlds to be held in Gamigori, Japan. Full results from this year's event are available on the event website at the address below.
