All three classes competing at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games were in action on the second day of sailing at Club Nautico San Isidro, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Girlâ€™s and Boyâ€™s Kiteboarding and the Mixed Nacra 15s begin racing today, joining the Girlâ€™s and Boyâ€™s Windsurfing (Techno 293+) which started yesterday.
Two heats were raced in the Girlâ€™s and the Boyâ€™s fleets; the top three ranked athletes in each heat progress to a six-strong Heat Final A, while the other six are put through to Heat Final B.
The finishing positions in Final A and B will decide the result for the first race of the week.
Paula Herrmann (DOM) and Christian Tio (PHI) both finished second in their heats and will be racing in the Girlâ€™s and Boyâ€™s Final A.
â€śI enjoyed the first day of the competition and Iâ€™m really happy to reach Final A because I had a really hard heat,â€ť said Herrmann.
â€śItâ€™s everyoneâ€™s dream to be here and my aim is to get a really good result,â€ť added Tio.
Also making up the Girlâ€™s Final A are Sofia Tomasoni (ITA), Nina Font (ESP), Poema Newland (FRA), Ona Romani (ARG) and Oliwia Hlobuczek (POL).
Joining Tio in the Boyâ€™s Final A will be Benoit Gomez (FRA), Cameron Maramenides (USA), Manoel Dos Santos Neto (BRA), Adeury Corniel (DOM) and Toni Vodisek (SLO).
The Girlâ€™s and Boyâ€™s Kiteboarders will follow heats-based system throughout the week, eventually determining which four athletes will progress to the final.
