Race Day 1 – 2021 4.7 Youth Europeans in Travemunde

3637 0

The day started with a heavy rain today at the 2021 EurILCA 4.7 Youth European Championships & Open European Trophy in Travemünde, Germany.

Sailors were sent to water for the first races starting at 11:00 as per scheduled. Rain was not heavy then but also the wind was light.

The Race Committee managed to start all races though but only after several General recalls that finally meant loosing a precious time for racing, cause after the first legs the wind dropped dramatically and all races had to be abandoned, and all fleets were sent to shore to wait for better conditions.

Finally at 17:00 the RC called sailors to return to their courses to try some races. Starting procedures started at 18:00 on both fields and all fleets started racing but a new wind drop made all of them to be abandoned for a second time. So there were finally no scoring news unfortunately.

Three races are scheduled for tomorrow, with first warning at 11:00. We hope we have better luck.

12 races are expected to be sailed until Friday 30th when the event will conclude and we’ll meet the new 2021 4.7 Youth European champions!
