Max and Alex defend Youth World Champion title
(Apologies for the delay in reporting on the final results - internet issues) The Worlds ended with an impressive set of results from team GBR after a demanding week of classic Garda saililing. The Ora obliged throughout the week except for the final day when the PRO set the fleet afloat early to catch the Northerly befor it died. Leading the pack, Max Richardson & Alex Groves defended their World Youth title finishing in 4th overall. The gold fleet comprised of only a handful of Youth sailors, as the experience of the older 49er crews showed through, the Australians taking the first 3 places. Tom Durham and George Hand finished 12th, Bleddyn Mon & Nick Redding 15th, and Henry LLoyd Williams and Sam Batten 22nd.
