The 49er, 49erFX and Nacra17 Junior World Championships in Gdynia, Poland, finished with dominant victories for Poland and Italy in men’s, women’s and mixed Junior Worlds.
Mikolaj Staniul with Jakub Sztroch (POL) capped a wire to wire 49er Junior Worlds victory by winning the final four races in a row to finish with a 27 point margin.
Keanu Prettner with Jakob Flachenburger (AUT) leapfrogged Hernan Umpierre with Fernando Diz (URU) on the final day with a 4, 3, 2 to take the silver medal by only a single point, with the Uruguayans settling for Bronze.
In the 49erFX it was a second dominant victory for Jan Germani with Giorgia Bertuzzi (ITA).
They finished 26 points ahead of the next female team, and held off the male teams as well for a comfortable victory.
Willemijn Offerman with Elise Ruyter (NED) took the silver medal while Marla Bergmann with Hanna Wille (GER) took the Bronze.
Richard Schulthies with Max Korner (MLT) finished second overall, but mix and male teams do not qualify for the 49erFX World Championship titles.
The Nacra 17 fleet was dominated by another Italian team of Gianluigi Ugolini with Maria Giubelei.
They won eleven of fifteen races to secure their second Junior World title.
The pair were clearly the class of the field, leading two French teams, Margaux Billy with Leo Maurin (FRA) finished second while Titouan Petard with Lou Berthomeiu (FRA) finished in third.
