The weather was not on sailors side today in Puck, Poland, where the 2023 EurILCA Europa Cup POL is being held.
Only the ILCA 7 and ILCA 6 fleets could manage to have a race with Southeast wind conditions of 8-9 knots, before a stormy weather coming in and forcing all competitors to return to shore.
After one hour break ashore, the Race Committee renewed its attempts to conduct races, but unfortunately the lack of wind prevented any new races to start.
This way the ILCA 4 keeps the same scores from yesterday, while the ILCA 6 and ILCA 7 are counting now with a fifth race in their standings. The following are the top sailors in every fleet;
