US SAILING Youth Championships

Newsbrief

One hundred and fifty sailors from 23 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands raced the US SAILING Youth Championship, sponsored nationally by Vanguard Sailboats and Nautica. Despite the changeable conditions, winning 29er team Emily Dellenbaugh (Easton, Conn.) and Briana Provancha (San Diego, Calif.) and second-place team Oliver Toole and Willie McBride (both of Santa Barbara, Calif.) tracked steadily to the top of their competitive 19-boat fleet. These two teams battled for the lead in the early part of the series, with Toole/McBride leading by one point after day 1, both teams tied for first after day 2, and Dellenbaugh/Provancha taking a two-point lead after day 3. Heading into the final race, the women still had the lead but it was a slim one-point margin. "I just kept going fast and tried to be really smart and conservative," said Dellenbaugh. A second in the final race gave them their class win. The top men's and women's 29er teams qualify to represent the United States at the 2007 Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship-to be held in Kingston, Ontario, July 12-21. Emily Dellenbaugh and Briana Provancha, who sailed together at the '06 ISAF Youth Worlds in the Club 420 class, will be heading to Kingston along with top men's team Oliver Toole and Willie McBride.For more information and complete results from all classes, please visit: Final Results (top 5 in class / 11 races / 1 discard) 29er (19 boats)1.
