Silver for Martin Evans at Radial Youth Worlds

Martin Evans (GBR) wins Race 12 and takes the silver medal in the Laser Radial Youth - Mens Worlds at Takapuna, NZL

Britain's Martin Evans won Silver at the Laser Radial Men’s and Youth Worlds which finished in New Zealand Saturday. Andy Maloney of New Zealand was the winner and Max Moerman Maarten of the Netherlands took third. In the Youth women'd event, Gabrielle King of Australia won ahead of Sarah Gunni of Denmark. In the Men's event Canadian Michael Leigh took the title.

The final day of racing showed similar conditions to what the sailors have experienced all week, fifteen knot north-easterlies with a reasonable swell, making it another easy day for the race committee to get all races away.

Andy Maloney of New Zealand has comfortably taken out the Youth Men’s title, cruising to a seven point lead ahead of Martin Evans of Britain. Max Moerman Maarten from the Netherlands fought his way back to finish in third place.

In the Youth female contest, the title came down to the last race between Australian Gabrielle King and Cushla Hume-Merry from New Zealand. Gabrielle finishing first and Cushla second, secured the title for Gabrielle on a count back. Sarah Gunni of Denmark had third and ninth placings in the races today to hold onto third place.

Chole Martin was the best placed GBR competitor at eighth, with Melissa Addy ninth and Hannah Diamond eleventh.

Canadian Michael Leigh had another top day today with a first and second placing to prove again why he has finished top of the Men’s fleet. Brad Funk from the USA came in a very comfortable second with a fourteen point gap over third place, taken by Simon Morgan of Australia after having another consistent day to finish up on forty points. Ben Paton from Britain finished in eleventh place.

Prize giving will be held tonight at the North Harbour stadium to wrap up the Laser Radial Men and Youth Contests. This marks the final event undertaken by Takapuna Boating Club over the past four months, who would like to thank all the volunteers and sponsors involved.
