17087 0

Following a wind-induced race cancellation on the initial day, the 2023 ILCA Under 21 European Championships & Open European Trophy saw its commencement with the inaugural three races today. The weather conditions featured moderate to intense winds ranging from 12 to 18 knots, accompanied by minor waves and rainfall.

The day’s proceedings kicked off at 12:00 as originally planned, commencing with the first warning signal for the ILCA 7 yellow group. Subsequently, the ILCA 6 fleet and ILCA 7 blue group have also started their sailing procedures.

As the afternoon progressed, the wind gradually diminished; however, it maintained sufficient strength to facilitate the completion of all three scheduled races. Provided below are the initial provisional results, pending the Jury’s determinations.
