Youth Worlds 2008 - The best of the best

Sixty nations will be represented on the Bay of Arhus, Denmark when over 250 young sailors battle across seven events for the 2008 Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship.

The championship provides not just the drama of intense, high-level international competition, but also a glimpse at the next generation of sailing stars.

After months of intense preparation, competitors can put behind them thoughts of training and qualification, school and exams, and focus solely on the world’s premier youth sailing event as well as the Volvo Trophy, which is awarded to the top-performing nation.
