Patton eyes strong finish
Campbell Patton will be looking to make a late surge in the standings during the final day of racing at the Youth Sailing World Championships in Gdynia, Poland, today.
The Bermudian sits in 21st with a best finish of fifth among a 57-strong Laser Radial fleet heading into the two scheduled races.
Patton, who is studying in Sydney, Australia, qualified for the Youth Sailing World Championships after finishing fourth at the Laser Youth Easter Meeting regatta on Lake Garda, Italy, in April.
Yesterday, the lead swapped hands as Zac Littlewood, of Australia, replaced son of the surf Tytus Butowski at the top of the pecking order.
Littlewood holds a slim one-point advantage over Butowski with Yigit Yalcin Citak, of Turkey, ten points behind in third.
The Youth Sailing World Championships was first held in Sweden in 1971 and it has been held every year since. It is one of the key events of the federation to help promote top-level youth participation.
Bermuda hosted the championship in 1995.
Past notable winners Sir Ben Ainslie, of Britain, include the four-times Olympic gold medal-winner and America’s Cup skipper.
