F18 Worlds 2014 @Ireland, Youth Power House: Reiss-Whitehead lead


Photo: Jasper van Staveren. Reiss-Whitehead leading 2014 Worlds after 9 races. Sadly Ashby-Goodall were out in the first race due to a hit and were out for the rest of the day. They left Larsen-van West a free pass to keep their lead. But the youth US team, Taylor Reiss & Matthew Whitehead (F18Youth World Champs) put pedal to the metal with their C2 to score 5,2,2,1 and grab the lead of the championship

Being following their carreer for a while, I wrote they will become World and Olympic Champs 'one day', well, they surely are sailing accordingly. They had the best performance of the day together with the French Junior teams of Berrehar-Pomelec, Solune-Perron and Neiras-Rucard.

Larsen-van West had an ideal scenario with Ashby out and leading by 10 pts after the 8th race, but got an OCS in the final race and now are trailing Reiss-Whitehead by 4pts.

Bontempts-Amiot are 3rd and getting top 5 results consistently, lets see if they can put pressure to the top two to have 3 party fight for the Crown.

Still much to go, but what a great event we are seeing at Ireland. Again coverage was great from the water by the Org, remember to follow their twitter account at https://twitter.com/F18worlds2014 .
