McCaffrey and Grobbelaar in the lead at the Speed Europeans

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

After two days with light and variying winds, day three of the competition brought some action in the afternoon, after the race committee relocated the participants to a new venue a few kilometers away with a better angle to the wind.

Racing was started then at 14:00 hours, in very gusty and shifty winds variying from zero to 25 knots. Still the course was pretty broad and hte gusts usually never long enough to help the competitors over the complete course.

After 90 minutes the wind dropped completely, resulting in several rescue actions.

The fleet saw Jason McCaffrey (GBR, Cabrinha) in the lead ahead of Jochen Bock (GER, Flysurfer, B1). Arne Scholten (NED, Ozone) in third. The womens fleet was won by Jemma Grobbelaar (GBR, Flexifoil).

The forecast for tomorrow is promising, and the new spot should work better in the predicted northwest wind.

Racing continues until Saturday, and all the remaining days look promising to get results in.
