The last two races were held today in Thessaloniki, Greece, to crown our new 2022 EurILCA 6 Youth European champions! This way the event concluded with all 12 scheduled races done.
The wind was a little bit crazy today, with a strong wind coming from the NW in the morning, but afterwards decreasing to 3 knots for the time when the first starts were expected to run at 13:00. The wind completely died then for 1.5 hours, with all the 6 fleets waiting afloat in two different courses. Finally at 14:30 the AP flag was removed, restarting the racing sequence at 14:45 with 10-11 knots of breeze, finally dropping to 6-7 knots for the last set of races.
Would you like to know who were finally the medalists!? Continue reading! 😉
