The RS Games 2022 – RS Aero Youth World Championship

July 30, 2022

RS Aero Youth World Championship – Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy, UK, 25 – 29 July – Day 5 & Overall
by the RS Aero International Class Association

The final day of the RS Aero Youth World Championship dawned with a calm Harbour drenched in wonderful sunshine. After a short postponement the fleet was sent afloat for the last two races to decide the final positions. 5-8kns of breeze provided and lovely warm sunshine greeted the fleet on the racecourse.

In the RS Aero 7s Vejas Strelciunas (LTU) had a relaxed day with the title already won. The battle was on for the 2nd Tim Hire (GBR) clinched it with a 1,4 with Alistair Brown (GBR) completing the podium in 3rd overall. First Under 19 was Matt Banbrook (GBR) in 6th and first Under 16 was Carl Furhoff (SWE). First Female RS Aero 7 was Abigail Larr (GBR).

The RS Aero 5 fleet had it all to play for with the top four close for the overall title. The gap narrowed after Race 13, with Jonathan Bailey (GBR) taking the win from Ludovica Cui (ITA) as they approached the finish. That left just 4 points separating Tom Ahlheid (GBR), Sam Blaker (GBR) and Jonathan Bailey (GBR). In the last race Vanja Ramm-Ericson (SWE) pulled out a large lead to take the win. In the fight for the top spots overall it was Jonathan who headed right on the first upwind to benefit and finish 2nd and with the other contenders stuck back in the pack the title was Jonathan’s. Tom took the Silver and Sam the Bronze.

First Under 19 RS Aero 5 was Tom Ahlheid (GBR)in 2nd and first Under 16 was Vanja Ramm-Ericson (SWE), with first male under 16 being Baptiste Courtias (FRA). First Female overall in the RS Aero 5s was Abby Hire (GBR), placed in 5th overall.

So ends the first RS Aero Youth World Championship, deemed by all competitors and supporters as a huge success with 73 competitors coming together, aged between 13-21 years and representing 12 nations. All the young sailors enjoyed great racing over a variety of conditions and the international camaraderie ashore, making new friends for life.
