AC 45 Racing

 After the Kiwis won the Louis Vitton Cup the stage was turned over to the worlds top youth sailors. The Red Bull AC Youth cup was four days of racing in the AC 45 cats. It was a fleet racing spectacular.Above the boats lined up at the start.

 Viewing from the shore was excellent as when racing the Bay tide and current play a big part of any effective strategy.

 As you can see from the pictures the weather was perfect. It seems as of Sept 1 a switch was thrown and summer started in the Bay.

The Youth regatta was won by a strong team from New Zealand with first and second place teams. Portugal took third and the US team finished fifth.
