At the first 3 days it was disappointing because the wind was really light and difficult to sail. Today was an amazing day with really fantastic conditions! Big waves and strong wind. My favorite conditions. The waves were very big and was a bit difficult to find the mark so I lost the way to n3 mark in the second race. I was lucky I had a secure distance so it didn’t cost me any places. I think we should have done one more race today. Last day tomorrow and I think I m very close to win this championship – Adonis Bougiouris GRE
Leandro Rosado ESP (1-
RET-23-8-2) is first Apprentice Master and ranked 6th overall with 34 points.
Wolfgang Gerz GER heads the Great Grand Master’s competition with 44 units and placed 12th overall.
Forecast announces the sailing conditions tomorrow will be pretty similar to today, may be a little bit less wind, so let’s wait for more tough and challenging races to decide our new 2020 Laser Master European champions! 😉
