That comment might also be applied to Leung Ho Tsun (HKG 2) who won the first race and dropped to 14th in the second.
These two have got to strike a rich vein in the next two days before the forecast light winds kick in.
A new young racer more used to sailing a short board with a 3.3 metre sail in 40-50 knots of wind in Penghu is Chang Ho (TPE 8). In the 12-14 knots of wind out on the course today he at least was the most consistent, finishing 5th and 3rd to stand 2nd overall on equal points with the 2008 ISAF Vice-Youth World Champion, Thiesas Kampas (GRE 3 - 2nd and 6th)
In the 3rd and 4th the strong Polish contingent are making their presence felt. Piotr Myszkowski (POL 4) and Jacek Piasecki have both established a base from which to build.
But it is Liran Moshe Machiev (ISR 111) who could be the dark horse. He won the 2008 RS:X Youth European Championships in Mondello in light winds so if he can just hang onto Chang Hao and Thieseas Kampas at the front of the fleet in the next two breezey days, he will be able to demonstrate his light wind prowess towards the end of the regatta.
Sidebar... the RS:X Class would like to thank everyone involved in getting these young sailors here for this postponed RS:X Youth World Championships. It has taken a not insignificant amount of grit and determination to re-organise school schedules to make it happen. Your support is much appreciated!
