The Four Star Pizza ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship got off to a tricky start for the 350 crews of 14-19 year olds from 63 nations. Dublin Bay threw up a mix of light to moderate winds, with shifts and gusts as clouds passed over, while allowing the occasional glimpse of sunshine through.
One of the most intriguing results is in the SL16 catamaran where after two races Belgium's Henri Demesmaeker and Philip Hendrickx are tied on four points with Australia's mixed crew of Paul Darmanin and Lucy Copeland. Demesmaeker, aged 14, is the youngest sailor at the Four Star Pizza ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships and leads despite having only teamed up with Hendrickx to sail this event and having sailed the SL16 for the first time only very recently.
