Medalists crowned at Youth Sailing World Championship:
Corpus Christi, TX (July 20, 2018) – After six classes were clinched yesterday, the racing portion of the 48th Youth Sailing World Championships wrapped up this afternoon with the final three gold medalists determined.
Carmen and Emma Cowles of the U.S.A successfully defended the gold medal they won last year in the 420 Girls Class to wrap up a sweep of the 420 classes for the U.S.A. JC Hermus and Walter Henry won the 420 Boys Class yesterday.
Quantum remains strong at TP52 Worlds:
Cascais, Portugal (July 20, 2018) – Quantum Racing carry a seven-point lead into the final day of the Rolex TP52 World Championship, to all intents and purposes a relatively healthy margin, even with the expectation of two breezy last races for a nine-boat fleet.
But Terry Hutchinson, the US-flagged five-time world champions’ hard-driving leader reaffirms, once again, that no margin can be considered secure, particularly given the strong-breeze, big-wave conditions, and the strength and depth of the competition.
