A great windy and sunny day enlightened today the fifth day of competition at the 2022 EurILCA 4 Youth European Championships & Open European Trophy in Dziwnnow, Poland.
It was the second day of the Final series, where the fleets sailed in Gold, Silver and Bronze groups.
9-14 knots from shore made the racing really fun and challenging, completely changing the sailing conditions we had the previous days, with less pressure and more swell.
The races started as per scheduled; 12:00 at the Silver/Bronze’s course and 12:45 at the Gold fleet’s course.
Only 1 day is missing now to know who will be the 2022 EurILCA 4 Youth European champions.
209 boys and 132 girls are being part of this European championships, representing 34 nations from all around the World.
