Light Winds Mean No Racing for McMahon and Wright at World Youth Sailing Championships

Leader Eve McMahon and second overall Rocco Wight in the girls and boys singlehanded dinghy did not race yesterday at the World Youth Sailing Championships as light winds thwarted racing. 

The winds of five knots meant no racing for some fleets.

The slowest boat in the Youth Worlds line-up, the ILCA 6 dinghy struggles the most with punching into an adverse current.

Meanwhile, Ireland's third boat at the event features Emily Conan and Lauren O'Callaghan (Royal St. George YC and National YC) who are 19th overall in the 29er skiff event after six races sailed.
