USA and Australia hold lead at Youth Worlds as breeze eases on day 3
Still on top of the boy's 420 is USA's Will Logue and Bram Brakman despite a discarded sixth and a second place which gives them 11 points to date.
Challenging the Americans is Australia's Alec Brodie and Xavier Winston Smith. They mimicked their rivals scores of a sixth and second, but with a ninth place finish on day two they carry their sixth place. Brodie and Smith have 16 points.
Climbing up to third with a perfect day was Leonardo Lombardi and Rodrigo Luz (BRA) who took two bullets and finished the day on 19 points. With their closes rivals having consistently higher finishes so far, the Brazilians needed the bullets to stay in touch at the top.
Australian's Nia Jerwood and Lisa Smith still lead the way in the girl's 420 as they took a bullet in the first race of the day. They could only follow that up with a 12th place though, but lucky for the duo they can discard the lower placement.
Jerwood and Smith's Trans-Tasman neighbours, New Zealand's Kerensa Jennings and Chelsea Rees took the other bullet of the day, but 15th place followed and they sit sixth overall on 35 points.
Second on the leaderboard is Poland's Julia Szmit and Hanna Dzik who scored a second and third to put them on 14 points. Third place is held by Austria's Angelika Kohlendorfer and Viktoria Puxkandl on 26 points.
As the Championship reaches the halfway stage, 420 Class Coach, Nikos Drougkas, who has been appointed by the International 420 Class to support all 420 teams, today put a focus on minimising mistakes in his team briefing. Find out more.
