Race day 3 report – 2024 ILCA Under 21 Europeans

22423 2

The third day of competition of the 2024 ILCA Under 21 European Championships & Open European Trophy concluded today after a long day on water and two new races added to scores.

Hosted by Reial Club Nàutic Port de Pollença in Majorca, Spain, the event has drawn 202 sailors from 36 nations, including 28 from Europe.

As with previous days, proceedings began with a shore postponement. However, once on the water, all three fleets successfully commenced and completed their initial races of the day before the wind subsided. Despite the need to significantly shorten the course for the ILCA 7 blue fleet, the races were completed.

Following a period of waiting on the water, the breeze returned to the course, allowing each fleet to compete in one more race.

With three days of competition and five races completed per fleet, the championship has reached now its halfway point. From tomorrow on, the ILCA 7 fleet will be split into Gold and Silver fleets, while the ILCA 6 remains a single fleet with no changes. The provisional leaders are as follows:

ILCA 6 Championship

Reigning ILCA 6 Women’s Under 21 World champion Eve McMahon IRL (13-6) continues on top of girl’s competition, despite now closely followed two points behind by Lilly May Niezabitowska POL (9-1). Local sailor Marga Perello ESP (18-10) holds the third position with 25 units.
