After a long time waiting for wind to come down, Gold fleet sailors were finally allowed to launch at 4 pm to have two new races under hard windy conditions. Rest of competitors couldn’t race today so it’s second consecutive day for them without sailing 😞

Federica Cattarozzi ITA (4-3-
14-7-1-1-1-1) rocked again today in Los Alcázares, Spain, winning both races under windy conditions, so she’s now really close of being the new Laser 4.7 European champion, with a 15 points gap of follower Shai Kakon ISR (5-5-3- 16-7-3-5-5), current leader of U16 category.
