The Youth Worlds is a competition that was initiated in 1971 in Sweden. This year would be the 47th edition of this tournament that is held every year. Many notable sailors have arisen by participating in this event such as Chris Dickson, Dean Barker, and Russell Coutts, who were skippered in the America’s Cup and others like Richard Clarke and Stuart Bannatyne who were sailors in the Volvo Ocean Race. The last winner of the trophy was Italy though France has gained maximum success if the championship’s history is checked. Many women sailors have shown considerable success in the Mistral or Laser category last year.
