At the training camp, they focused on race preparation, including starts and mark roundings so they come into the event fully prepared to compete against some of the best youth sailor talent in the world.

The clinic was held in Gdanks, a short drive away from Gdynia, the host venue of the 2019 Hempel Youth Worlds. Sailors were able to acclimatise to the local surroundings, form friendships before moving to the official regatta venue to finalise their preparations.

At the mid-point of the competition, the competitors have settled into the event and are focusing fully on achieving the highest possible result.

The sailors at the event are:

World Sailing's Training and Delivery Manager, Rob Holden, and London 2012 Olympian Anna Weinzieher, are supporting the athletes throughout. Class specific coaches are also at the World Championships in the 29er, 420 and RS:X.
