470 WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP 2021

Sanremo, 13 July 2021

The 470 Junior World Championship, organised by the Yacht Club Sanremo, started off with a great day with west wind between 15 and 20 knots.

Fantastic glides and close combat between 53 teams from 16 different nations.

After three races in the Mixed class that will be the protagonist in the coming Olympics in Marsiglia in 2024, it was made clear the domination from the French team, Pacaud and De Gennes, with two firsts and one third place.

Excellent work from the two italian teams, the young Gradoni with the expert Dubbini, positioning themselves at the secon and third place, and with only 1 point distance at third place Marchesini Festo.

In the Open Class the Austrich Lehmann and Haberl with three victories are firmly in command, demostrating great supremacy in strong condition over the whole fleet.

The Imperia citizens, Bozzano and Casano, with two second places have shown great potential.

Tomorrow another day at sea and we are hoping to have favorable forecast conditions like today.
