Martin Evans chases lead in Radial Youth Worlds


Conditions were again proving to be pretty spectacular with north-easterlies of 12-18 knot breezes giving the sailors a good workout in big waves. With the discard now in, results have seen a mix-up, but in all three fleets, the leaders continued to stay out in front of the opposition today.

Having not finished outside the top two in all of his races, Michael Leigh (CAN) is showing a dominant performance in the Men’s fleet, pulling away from Brad Funk (USA) in second place, who is four points off the lead. Having been able to discard a starting penalty, Simon Morgan (AUS) sits in third place. Britains' Ben Paton is in 13th place.

In the Men’s Youth fleet, Andy Maloney (NZL) started the day off well with a third but slipped up with a starting penalty in race six. With the discard now in the results he is still eight points clear of second placed Martin Evans (GBR). Evans was third in his first race then won the second to go one point ahead of Max Moerman Maarten (NED).

This is a very tight event with Tom Burton (AUS) in fourth another point back and then four competitors on 22 points, including Britain's James Spencer.

Cushla Hume-Merry (NZL) retains her lead in the Female Youth fleet with a four point margin over Gabrielle King (AUS) in second place. While Sarah Gunni (DEN) jumped up the score board into third place after discarding a starting penalty in race two.

Chloe Martin of Britain, is still the best placed, in eighth with Hannah Diamond up into tenth, then Melissa Addy in eleventh.

A fantastic effort has been done by the North Shore City Council who is providing pasta each afternoon once racing is completed. It has been very well received by sailors, coaches and volunteers alike.
