About the ISAF Youth Worlds
The ISAF Youth Worlds is the world's leading championship for youth sailing and attracts thousands of young sailors from all over the world. The event was first held in Sweden in 1971 and the 2013 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship in Limassol, Cyprus will be the 43rd championship.
The event has attracted thousands of young sailors since its introduction from Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, North, South and Central America. Recently the introduction of the ISAF Athlete Participation Programme has seen the horizons of the Youth Worlds expand even further and attracted many new nations to the championship. To date, 104 different nations have competed in the Youth Worlds.
Past notable winners include American's Cup skippers, Chris Dickson (NZL), Russell Coutts (NZL), Dean Barker (NZL); Olympic medallists, Ben Ainslie (GBR), Robert Scheidt (BRA), Alessandra Sensini (ITA), Iain Percy (GBR) and Elise Rechichi (AUS); Volvo Ocean Race sailors like Stuart Bannatyne (NZL) and Richard Clarke (CAN). The most successful ISAF Youth World Champions are Great Britain's Sally Cuthbert and Poland's Zofia Klepacka having won four successive titles in the Laser II and Mistral respectively.
Great Britain is the current holder of the NationsTrophy, awarded annually to the top performing nation at the Youth Worlds. The Nations Trophy was first introduced in 1991 and in 1999 became the Volvo Trophy until 2010. France is the most success nation through the history of the Championship, winning the Nations Trophy on a record eleven occasions and holding a record 70 medals: 22 gold, 30 silver and 18 bronze.
