Brits win Nacra 15 Youth Olympic Qualifier

Britain's Benno Martsaller and Chloe Collenette won the Nacra 15 Youth Olympic Qualifier event at Medemblk.

The 28 Nacra 15’s from 13 countries sailed a total of 14 races in fantastic sailing in Medemblik, with Martsaller and Collenette finishing ten points clear of Australia's Shannon and Jayden Dalton.

Third were Max Wallenberg and Amanda Bjork-Anastassov of Switzerland, who also qualified their country for the Youth Olympics 2018 in Argentina, as did the Tunisia team Chaima Chamari and Sami Arjoun.

The qualification system to participate the Youth Olympics is based on four qualication events: This week in Medemblik the best European and best African country have qualified.

Folowed by a qualifier event in Miami (November) to qualify the best North- and best South American country.

In January in Queensland the qualifying of the best Asia and Oceania country.

Argentina will get a wild-card due to being the host nation and in April during the Nacra 15 Worlds the final seven country placings will be earned and qualified.

Once a country is selected then their organising authorities will then organize their own selections.

The Nacra 15 is the “pathway class” to the Olympic Nacra 17 multihull. For many sailors the next big event will be the World Sailing Youth Worlds in Sanya (China) in December.
