Antonio Bailey, Michael Barit, Rory Caslin, Makai Joell and Ceci Wollmann continued taking on the world’s best youth sailors at The Optimist Worlds in Napier, New Zealand
A total of 210 competitors from 48 countries were divided into 6 groups resulting in three fleets per race and a spectacle on the start line with seventy boats per race.
For a long time it looked like todays' sailing wasn't going to happen. There was wind, there was rain, and there was fog and therefore poor visibility.
The wind started at 19 knots, but eased back to around 14 and even though the wind was stronger than previous days, the lighter sailors did really well.
Tomorrow is the last day of this world championship, and the weather forecast is fine with north-easterly winds, between 11 and 19 knots.
Sailing in the Pink Fleet Caslin continues to lead the local contingent finishing 45th Overall with 212 points, while Joell finished the day in 141st place with 388 points sailing in the Green Fleet.
Bailey finished the day in 143rd overall with 390 points sailing in the Red Fleet, while Baritt sailing in the Blue Fleet finished in 150th with 404 points and Wollmann finished 156th sailing in the White Fleet with 419 overall points.
