Nores Leads RS:X Fleet at Youth Worlds After Day 3


Miami’s own Geronimo Nores (Miami Beach, FL) continues to lead the RS:X boys division at the 2018 World Sailing Youth World Championships, hosted by Corpus Christi Yacht Club in Texas.  Today was day 3 of the annual event and Nores continued to show his domination in the big breeze conditions.  Posting a scoreline of 1-1-3 today, Nores’ performance places him 5 points ahead of Italy’s Nicolo Renna.

Day 3 of the championship saw slightly fresher conditions then yesterday with the famous Corpus Christi seabreeze filling in at a solid 18-22 knots from the Southeast.

“I’m pretty surprised, it’s very exciting,” said Nores, whose first name is from his Argentinian mother and not a reference to the legendary American Indian. “It was a combination of good wind, being well rested and energized, and sailing well.”

Day 4 looks to be yet another big breeze day for the RS:X fleet with slightly more in it in the forecast.  Towards the 1PM start time, we could see as much as 25 knots of true wind speed.

About the Youth Worlds

The Youth Worlds was first held in Sweden in 1971. The 2018 Youth Sailing World Championships will be the 48th edition of the championship.

As the regatta evolved further classes were added to bring the best young sailing talent across the world together in one place and in 1984 the Mistral windsurfer was added to the list of events with Knut Budig (GER) taking the first gold medal in San Diego, California.
