5 races on the second day ofthe European Championships at Sylt

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

After an almost windy kickoff yesterday, with several unsuccessful starting attempts, five races could be completed today.

Bruno Sroka (FRA, Cabrinha) took the lead ahead of Julien Kerneur (FRA, Takoon) in close battling, Rolf van der Vlugt (NED, Airush) closely behind in third.

In the womens fleet the battle is on between Katja Roose (NED, Airush) in the lead, then Caroline Adrien (FRA, Cabrinha) and defending world champion Kari Schibevaag (NOR, Ozone).

The day kicked off with little hope for suitable wind, but the competitors from all over Europe where welcomed by a nice 11 knot seabreeze. Racing commenced at 10:40 with a two round windward-leeward course, and three more races followed back to back. After a lunch break the course was changed to a large box, and with the wind dropping to 8 knots along with pretty strong current it took the winner slightly more than 30 minutes to complete the race.

Racing was cancelled then for the rest of the day as the wind was further dropping.
