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.

The 8 Dutch national youth champions participating were:
Jeanet Engelsma - Flits
Xander Schaap - RS Feva
Hidde Schraffordt - Laser Radial
Zeb van Dorst - Laser 4.7
Jolle Bausch - Splash
Max Frank - Laser 4.7 (2020)
Jasmijn Holtus - Optimist (2020)
Laura van den Acker - RS Feva (2020)
To familiarise themselves with the RS Aero all the invitees joined the pre-event training on the Friday evening before the event and sailed into the sunset, under the guidance of top coach Annemieke Beemster.

Day 1
It was a privilege to watch this great bunch of talented youth in action with 5 races sailed. The day started out with a patchy 4 to 6 knots which increased to around 12 knots, testing the young sailors in their mastery of the RS Aero. Tomorrow looks like it will be offering a couple more knots and perhaps a chance to move up another gear.

Day 2
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.
