Two new races were added to scores today in Hourtin, under a beautiful sunshine. This way the 2022 EurILCA Under 21 European Championships & Open European Trophy successfully wrapped the second day of competition. The event is organised by Club Voile Hourtin Medoc, with the support of the Municipality of Hourtin.

61 girls and 110 boys from 36 nations are being part of these ILCA 6 and ILCA 7 championships respectively.

The first warning signal was supposed to be at 1300 today but it was only at 1320 when the wind arrived and the competitors were allowed to launch their boats.

The sailing conditions were shifty as yesterday, although the breeze was a little bit stronger, around 7-12 knots.
