STORY SCRIPT:

The sailing continued at the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires on Saturday (13th October) with the mixed two-person Multihull coming to its conclusion.

Multihull uses a cumulative scoring system where the points from the 13 races in the series are added together and the team with the lowest score is the overall winner.

On this occasion, it was gold medal glory for the host nation with Dante Cittadini and Teresa Romairone doing enough in the final race to take the overall win.

With six top-two finishes in the first 12 races, they came into the final race in prime position to secure the gold, and despite erratic wind conditions, a sixth place finish was enough for them to fulfil that potential.
