A great new day of sailing concluded today in Hourtin, where the 2022 EurILCA Under 21 European Championships & Open European Trophy are being held. The event is organised by Club Voile Hourtin Medoc, with the support of the Municipality of Hourtin.
The day started with a 1:20 hour postponement on shore while waiting for the wind to come.
