The Carlos Aguilar Match Racing December 8-11, 2011.
Virgin Islander Ian Barrows sailed to gold in the boy's Byte CII class. Barrows had hit the front on the penultimate day of the regatta and made certain of success with a third-place finish in the medal race. His score of 44 points gave him a 16-point margin of victory over Germany's Florian Haufe, who claimed silver. Netherlands Antilles' sailor Just Van Aanholt clinched bronze after winning the race on the last day, shading out Finland's Kaarle Tapper by four points. Barrows stayed very focused to the end as he maturely describes, 'You've just got to stay really focused and not get too caught up in the results and not get too nervous. I had really good boat speed on the upwind and tactics, so that helped a lot and I was super conservative.'
