Langkawi has served up some exceptional breeze for the first three days of competition at the ISAF Youth Worlds putting the three competing Irish boats in the top 25% of their respective fleets.
There were top five results all round for the Irish yesterday. Lough Derg's Aisling Keller took a 3 moving her up to 11th in the girls radial, Ballyholme's Liam Glynn had a 4 and is in 14th in the boys Radial, and Doug Elmes & Colin O'Sullivan had two 5's and drop from third to fourth in the 420.
There is no racing tomorrow and lighter winds Saturday and Sunday so it's going to be a very interesting finish.
In a break from the norm, winds and storms dropped in and out on day three of the 45th Youth Sailing World Championships in Langkawi, Malaysia.
On a day when the winds were predicted to drop below the 20 knots the record 425 sailors had come accustomed to, it was the varying winds that kept everyone on there toes as the storms that threatened never fully materialized.
There were changes at the top of the leaderboards as more perfect days, and some not so perfect, were scored by the ever adapting youth sailors in a topsy turvy day.
