Nacra 15s @Dutch Youth Regatta 2018

---

Video By Nacra Sailing fb - Many of the crews who participated in recent Nacra 15 Worlds are also racing at this year Dutch Youth Regatta.  Today I received a message from Nico Aragones,  now training the kids along Nicolas Schargorodsky. Happy to see for the first time  Argentinean youths racing cats at the highest level, and from thi air as nacra 15 Worlds were their 2 regatta at most on the Nacra 15. Now with that major event behind, where Dante Cittadini & Teresa Romairone finished 4th overall on a 60 boats fleet, the two Arg crews are leading the Dutch Youth Regatta after 4 races. This time Massimo Contessi & Agustina Castro Fau in first place ahead their fellow crew.

Third place for the 2018 Nacra 15 World Champs, Henri Demesmaeker & Frederique van Eupen. Still much to go but what a start for the Arg crews, so proud to see next generation racing Multis and happy for their coaches, Aragones is one of the top F18 crews and several Arg Nat Champ, and  Schargorodsky finished 3rd with Jason Hess in 2016 Worlds.

So the F18 experience is paying off and being passed away to the kids, who are learning fast to sail & race cats.
