The commencement of the 2023 ILCA Under 21 European Championships & Open European Trophy event faced a postponement today due to inclement weather characterized by heavy rainfall and strong winds ranging from 40 to 50 knots.
The temperature has considerably lowered to 11 degrees Celsius, resulting in a rather chilly atmosphere here in Stavanger.
The forecast announces fairly similar conditions for tomorrow, although the wind is not expected to exceed 28 knots.
Let’s wait for better conditions to start sailing and enjoy of this wonderful competition.
