Day 1 - 2011 Fiji Hobie Youth Championship

After 3 days of training, the Fiji Hobie Youth Championship started with ideal sailing conditions. 12 - 15 knots gusting up to 20 knots.
All competitors for the event (3 Wallis + Futuna, 1 Noumea and 8 Fiji Team) are failry evenly matched in skills and it's a battle to keep the lead especially between Chatonnier Lucas of New Caledonia and Moape Draunavesi of Fiji.
The occasional 20knots saw a couple of capsizes and remarkable recovering from the Wallis team who were heros from zeros.
Here are the results from the first 3 races this morning. They've just come in for lunch and then it's back on the water for another 3 races before calling it a day for Day 1.
