Challenging weather for day 1 of the World Sailing Youth Match Racing championships off Newport Beach California.

Clare Costanzo and her team of Jess Angus, Emma May and Hannah Lanz representing the RPAYC and Australia, started off the day versing the other all female team from Sweden. Clare had a dominating start with an easy lead in back to the start in the light south westerly, to take a comfortable win. The next two races saw losses against the Italian and United Kingdom teams. Both races saw a few strategic and tactical  errors get exposed as well as boat speed out of tacks. 
We managed to improve on the above points to take a win in the next race against the Danish team.

The last match of the day was against fellow Australian, and top ranked skipper Harry Price.
Everything was going to plan with Costanzo controlling almost all the prestart. At the last 30 seconds Price managed to get an overlap and forced Costanzo onto port. The girls tried to get back onto starboard but in doing so earned two penalties and an OSC off the start line!
One positive to take away was that Price's leading Margin was reduced on each leg of the course.

"Obviously we didn't sail a perfect day, however we are determined to learn from every loss and not repeat the same mistake twice! Being a World Championships, one mistake can mean the difference between winning and losing."
"We really enjoy the opportunity of sailing in a fleet of this calibre, and will come out tomorrow stronger" said a determined Costanzo.

With a thunderstorm approaching, it was called a day at 1730hrs.
