Congratulations to the ice sailors, the future of our sport, who competed at the 2023 Junior World Championship in Kertuoja, Lithuania, March 5 – 7. Day one brought challenging snow-covered ice conditions and winds of 12 – 18 mph. Competitors played the wind waiting game on day two before it filled in time to complete the regatta on Tuesday, March 7. Unfortunately, another snowstorm on Wednesday ended hopes of holding the Junior European Championship.
