As the Youth Sailing World Championships is round the corner, the 14 sailors from the US Sailing Team started their mission for gold medals. The 48th Annual Youth Sailing Championships was hosted by the Corpus Christi Yacht Club and race is slated at the Corpus Christi Bay. Around 382 youth sailors featured in the regatta with age groups between 16 and 19. There are about 66 nations taking part in 9 classes. As far as the US team is concerned, it has 14 sailors from 5 states and these sailors are the same who travelled to China last year. The sailors include Emma Cowles and Carmen from Larchmont, New York and both are gold medalists. Charlotte Rose from Houston, Texas achieved gold in Girls 420 Class and Girls Laser Radial Class.
The Girls Laser Radial Class was achieved by Rose on a tiebreaker after achieving victory in 5 races. Her main competitors are Federica Cattarozzi from Italy and Valeriya Lomatchenko from Russia who won silver and bronze at the Laser Radial Youth European Competition which took place in Hungary in April. Well, looks like all teams are well prepared for the competition.
