Ahead of all at the end of two days of racing of the world championship match held Australian flight crew. He was haunted by teams from Denmark, New Zealand and Poland.

The first round Robin: each team played 11 races, meeting in turn with all the competitors.

The day was long and productive, juniors showed their fighting qualities brighter than on the first day – says Flavio Naveira, the main umpire of the championship of the world among juniors. Our sport is highly dependent on the weather: when the wind is weak, then you have to wait or change the disposition in search of wind, but the organisers of races cope well with all situations on the water. If the third and fourth days will be a breeze, then we’ll have a second round Robin and move on to the semi-finals.

– Had an interesting day, – shared his impressions Jeppe Borch, skipper of the crew from Denmark. We visited some of the strongest teams in difficult races. In truth, members of my crew are very emotional, quickly moving from joy to anger. Well, we as a team learn to keep their emotions in check. I want to emphasize that the organization of the race is excellent and we will quickly get from the organizers of the answers to all your questions.

– Today, we lost a few matches, – said the Polish skipper Igor Tarasuk. – It would seem that this is not a very good result, but I’m happy with our team. A lot of matches ahead, and I hope we will show all that capable.
