Youth Primus Inter Pares - GWV De Vrijbuiter, Loosdrecht, Holland, 16/17 Oct
Thanks to Mark Cole for his summary;
The Youth Primus Inter Pares, the annual regatta for the Dutch Youth 'Champion of Champions' was once again held in the RS Aero 5s after the first edition in 2019. All winners of the Dutch Championships in Youth Classes were be invited to compete in the fleet of RS Aero 5s which were provided by RS Sailing, for the coveted Dutch Youth title. This included 2020 winners after no event was possible last year.
A bit more wind today with a S/SW breeze of 12 to 16 knots, and notoriusly shifty conditions on the lake around the mini-islands. 5 races were sailed bringing a grand total of 10 races sailed over the 2 days. It was the ILCA team sailors dominating the podium positions in the end, congratulations to Zeb van Dorst for taking the NL champion of champions title, Max Frank 2nd & Hidde Schraffordt 3rd.
A big Thank You to local RS Aero sailor Vincent Viool for looking after the sailors with safety and general support on the water.
The following week is a school mid term break in both the Netherlands and Germany and sees Youth training camps taking place in both countries building Youth participation and working towards the first RS Aero Youth World Championship in Weymouth UK in 2022 during the four yearly RS Games.
