The first day of the Finn Gold Cup at the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships delivered more than it promised as the wind exceeded the forecast light winds, though the fleet did have to wait afloat for more than an hour for the sea breeze to develop enough to start a race.
Leading from the first race to the end, Arkadiy Kistanov (RUS) kept his head on the final day of the Finn Silver Cup in Moscow to win the Junior World Championship after three more races were sailed. Milosz Wojewski (POL) had a great last day to climb to second overall, while team mate Artur Ponieczynski (POL) dropped one place to take third overall.
