Nacra 15 BA 2018 Youth Olympics Qualifiers: Day 1 by Laurens Morel



All images Laurens Morel / Saltycolours.com. Full gallery  Nacra 15 Class fb.  First day of racing for the Youth World Sailing Cat, the Nacra 15 with curved boards. The foiling version wont be used in Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympics.

After four races Shannon Dalton & Jayden Dalton from Australia lead with a good margin over the Benno Mastaller & Chloe Collenette (GBR) & Bjarne Bouwer & Eliott Savelon from Netherlands.

Pics by Laurens Morel show nice action. We have two boats here training almost every day, feedback is the boat has lots of power but also tends to pitch in the breeze waves.

Racing is being held at Medemblik, 28 young crews participating, coming mainly from Europe , two from Australia , two from Singapore & one from Tunisia.
