Mistral Youth European Championship
Puck

Racing got underway at the Mistral Youth European Championship in Puck, Poland on Tuesday Four races have now been completed and the stars of the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships are shining brightly.
On Day One Zofia KLEPACKA (POL), three time ISAF Youth World Champion, continued to dominate the girls fleet scoring two bullets in bright sunshine and 15 knots of breeze... Near perfect conditions! Just behind was Chan Wai MAN (HKG) scored two seconds with Flavia TARTAGLINI (ITA) scoring two thirds. All three fresh from the 2003 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship in Madeira.

In the boys class, the newly crowned ISAF Youth Sailing World Champion, Yu Wing HO (HKG) was having a few problems stamping his authority on the fleet, only managing a seventh and a fifth to take fourth place overall. Byron KOKKALANIS (GRE) was having none of it. He won the two races with a clear lead. Late entry Tom ASHLEY (NZL), just back from a 4 month lay-off due to injury, has not lost any of his speed and clever tactical ability and had a very satisfactory day in the office with two seconds. !

Zofia stumbled on Day two - relatively speaking of course -she finished fourth in the second race of the day. Marina ALABAU (ESP) benefited from taking the first discard and from a good performance finishing first and second today to jump to second in the overall standings. Chan Wai MAN (HKG) has slipped to third as a result.

There seems no way back for Yu Wing HO (HKG) who seems to have met his nemesis in Byron KOKKALANIS (GRE) who scored a third yesterday and discarded his second result which was 18! Tom ASHLEY (NZL) also had a bad one finishing 19 in the first race of the day but made up for it in the second with a bullet. Second overall now, he leads Kamil TOPKA (POL) by 13 points!
