470 Continental Championships


25 Jul 2022

The wind is back in Vilamoura! :)

This news belongs to
2022 470 Junior European Championship


After 2 days without races, and the previous ones with very light conditions, the 10-12 knots breeze today was received as a blessing on the fifth day of the 2022 420 & 470 Junior European Championships.

The day started with an AP on shore due to unstable conditions, but after 1 hour waiting, the fleets were finally sent to the water around 14:00.

Nice sailing conditions made the racing straight forward this time on water, excepting with the last 420's set of races, the third one for them, when a 40 degrees wind shift forced those races to be cancelled and be repeated.

The 470s returned to shore pretty quickly in the afternoon. The 420s did so much later, around 20:30.

After today's three races, all the fleets counting six now in total, one day prior to the final day of the championship.
