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 😞

European Laser 4.7 Championships – Day 5 – Gold fleet – Girls

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.

Provisional third place on podium is for Ilayda Veziroglu TUR (14-7-18-1-2-9-4-2), who’s draw in 39 pt with Maria Mateo Ferragut ESP (4-5-27-2-5-9-6-8).

Just one point behind, 5th overall and 2nd U16 is first days leader Giorgia Cingolani ITA (7-1-1-1-9-UFD52-11-10) with 40.

Also rocking in strong wind condition is Ana Moncada ESP (6-21-10-21-1-1-2-4) with 45 points, 6th overall now and rising, recovering from first light wind results.
