Nice sailing conditions today in Medemblik, Netherlands, where 2017 Radial Youth World Championships have completed second day of competition.
Consistent 10 knot wind and sunny skies allowed all 6 fleets completing their scheduled races.
Q3 and Q4 were added to scores now so we’re in half of Qualifying series.
A persistent left shift moved across the IJsselmeer throughout the day, causing multiple general recalls and postponements for course and starting line adjustments in every fleet.
Significant changes applied in top of Men and Women rankings, both headed now by European sailors.
