ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship
Canical, Madeira

251 of the world's top youth sailors, representing 56 different nations enjoyed some of the best event management - both onshore and afloat - at the 2003 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship in Canical, Madeira.
Following the conclusion of the event last Friday, we now bring you the top ten results by class and a selection of photographs from the Championship.

Friday 25 July 2003, saw the Closing Ceremony of the thirty-third holding of the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship, the pinnacle event for the world's top youth sailors.

Whilst the racing was the total focus for the competitors, many friendships were formed with much camaraderie amongst the sailors from around the world.

How Did They Do?

The competition was tough, very tough. Whilst some sailors seemed to have their podium place ensured from an early stage, for others it was a bit tougher. All sailors had their own personal goal, not all aimed at the medals, some were hoping for a top 10 finish, others to improve and learn from others. What goes without saying is that for all the Championship was an extremely positive experience, with much learned.

Some of the competitors are old-hands at the Youth Worlds, having participated in previous years and will soon, if not already, be on the Olympic circuit. Others have a few years of Youth Worlds competition left in terms of the age limit and will be back to challenge another year.

Congratulations to New Zealand, despite no medals around the team's neck, they managed to place in the top 10 across all events and finish third in the Nations' Trophy.

Croatia who have been placing some excellent results over recent years, both on the Olympic circuit and at the Youth Worlds, continued their form and took a bronze medal in the boys single-handed event, just missing the bronze in the girls single-handed event, and overall placed in the top 10 of all three events entered, to finish as eleventh overall in the Nations' Trophy.

Poland, next year's Youth Worlds hosts, swept the board in the girls windsurfing event, with Zofia KLEPACKA placing an almost perfect scoreline of bullets, to dominate the event and claim gold with a significant margin. Her team mates also placed well with a silver medal in the boys' single-handed event.

Angola, the Cook Islands, Puerto Rico and Samoa were all making their first appearance at the Youth Worlds and put in some impressive performances. Whilst they did not place well in the Nations' Trophy results, individual placings were fairly impressive for a first taste of this top-level competition.

France and Argentina also did well in the medal placings. Until last year, France had enjoyed an uncontested hold on the Nations' Trophy since 1996, only being ousted by New Zealand last year.

Argentina walked off with two medals in the boys double-handed and boys windsurfing events, to make this their most successful Youth Worlds in terms of medal results since last claiming a medal, and indeed Argentina's only Youth Worlds medal, in 1987 in the boys' single-handed event. Their young sailors will be going home to rapturous applause.

Daily reports from the Championship are available via the link below.

Nations' Trophy

Australia claimed the Nations' Trophy as best overall performing nation. Australia are no strangers to the Nations' Trophy, they've had their hands on it as top nation in 1993, placed second in 1994 and 2000, and third in 1992 and 1995.

With it they are only the third nation in the history of the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship to walk away with three Gold medals. The first time was France in 1992, and the second being Great Britain in 1995.

Australia have done one better than both France and Great Britain by claiming a silver medal to add to their luggage for the journey home, sure to be an emotional one as 2003 in Madeira represents the best ever overall performance by a nation at the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship.
