The Youth Fleet is a racing a single opening series throughout Saturday, with 4 medal races scheduled for each fleet on Sunday.

While Tomek Janiak won all races in his flight, runner-up Wilson Veloso (BRA, ML/Ozone) was only able to score 3 bullets which will make up for an interesting challenge in the Final series, starting tomorrow.Pedro Garijo (ESP, ML/Ozone) is currently sitting in second place and will have to challenge Veloso in todays races.

In th Youth fleet both Zakowski and Maxime Nocher (FRA, North) took two bullets and are tied in first. In third place with a solid performance is Spaniard Florian Trittel (Temavento/Cabrinha).
