ALL EVENT INFORMATION

 

After hearing all the news about the weather conditions in West-Europe there was some discussion about even stormy wind during the coach meeting. However, the wind remained very light in the morning. Everyone was hoping that once the rain stops, wind will build up on the lake. Unfortunately, such a thing did not happen, and the conditions were quite unstable until 14:00 hours. Following a promising change of direction, all sailors started to prepare for a race. Even the orange flag was displayed when the wind direction changed… only to drop again. The race committee was hoping for some change due to the upcoming storm, nevertheless the water stayed flat, and at 16.30 hours, A over AP was displayed. 
 
Therefore, the competitors are heading towards the final and medal race from the same order as yesterday. The race committee intends to start the final race at 11.00 and the medal race at 12.00. As there are just a few points separating a lot of competitors, tomorrow will be an exciting day which can be followed live on the official 470 page on Facebook.
