    A dazzling display on the water from Alina Kornelli (GER) ensured she remains top of the Girl’s Kiteboarding fleet at the Youth Olympic Sailing Competition at Club Nautico San Isidro, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    With lighter windspeeds than the previous day, all three classes were able to race. Windsurfing reverted back to fleet racing, and though Kiteboarding was initially affected by a postponement which saw them return to shore, the wind picked up sufficiently for them to return to the water.

    Kornelli has won four out of five races so far, including ...
