Great Britain's youth squad took the lead at the Nautica World Youth Sailing Championship by 152 points from Germany's 134 and New Zealand's 111 in Bermuda yesterday. Ben Ainslie has won his first four races in the singlehanded Laser and, in the double-handed Laser 2, the boys partnership of Nicholas Rogers and Pom Green leads while the girls' partnership of the sisters, Jessie and Sally Cuthbert, are second.

In Torbay the defending holder of the Dragon Gold Cup, Paul-Richard Hoj- Jensen, was disqualified for being over the line at the start of the third race as his German compatriots, Harm Muller-Speer and Markus Glas, engineered a first and third sandwich of Dutchman Cees Nater. The leading British entry, at fifth overall and sixth yesterday, is 67-year-old Terry Wade, of Burnham, who sails with his daughter, Teresa.
