Unfortunately no races today due to lack of wind in Athens, Greece, where the 2019 Laser Radial Youth European Championships & Open European Trophy are being played.
First races of the Final series were supposed to start at 11:00 but there was not enough wind at that moment. After one or two hours waiting on shore, all sailors were sent to water at the end of the morning and started racing but due to unstable wind those races needed to be abandoned.
A long time waiting on water and various unsuccessful attempts closed this fourth day of championships under a very hot weather, full of sun and smiles, but no wind.
Girl’s championship is led by Cyprus sailor Marilena Makri CYP (1-2-1-3-
5) with 7 points, followed by Giorgia Cingolani ITA ( 21-1-5-1-5) and Rosine Baudet SUI ( 10-4-1-5-3) with 12 and 13 points respectively.
Girl’s Under 17 fleet is headed by our recent 2019 Laser 4.7 European champion Alessia Palanti CZE (ex ITA – first time competing for Czech Republic) with 35 points and ranked 15th overall, followed by Marissa Ijben NED and Josephine Heegaard DEN with 41 and 46 points respectively.
German sailor Mewes Wieduwild GER (2-1-
10-1) is leading boy’s competition with 4 points, closely followed by first U17 sailor Ido Rachmani ISR (3-1- 4-1) and Sofiane Karim FRA (1- 3-3-2) with 5 and 6 points respectively.
Jordi Lladó Durán ESP and Jason Kefallonitis GRE are 2nd and 3rd U17 sailors with 12 and 13 points, being 7th and 8th overall respectively.
