Race day 3 results – 2022 EurILCA Senior Europeans

11829 0

The third day of racing concluded with only 1 race per fleet today at the 2022 EurILCA Senior European Championships & Open European Trophy in Hyeres, France.

Races were supposed to start at 12:00 in both courses, but strong winds of +25 knots during the morning made the Race Committee to postpone the action.

Later on in the noon the wind dropped and the ILCA 6 Women and Men fleets were allowed to go on water at 12:15. ILCA 7 did it a few minutes later.

Once in the courses, the wind was not much and very shifty, making the first of the ILCA 6 Women’s race to be cancelled after the windmark. Meanwhile in the ILCA 7 Men the wind was varying a lot so the starting procedure was delayed.

After some course’s adjustments, a new breeze of 10-15 knots was established and all the races were started. Unfortunately, and helped by some general recalls, the time in the afternoon was only enough to complete one race per fleet before the time limit.

This way the Qualifying series concluded after 5 races, with the following provisional leaders in all four championships at stake;
