Strong 18-32 knots wind conditions and storms allowed only the Gold fleets to go out for sailing today on the fifth day of races of the 2021 EurILCA 4.7 Youth European Championships & Open European Trophy in Travemunde.
A lot of fun but also capsizes and hard situations were experienced by the brave 127 youth sailors that were sent out to water.
Dutch Annemijn Algra NED is leading now the Girl’s championship with 31 points, relegating the overnight leader Emma Mattivi ITA to second but only 1 point behind. Claudia Adan Lledo ESP holds the third place on provisional podium with 40 units.
Italian Maria Vittoria Arseni ITA climbed from third to the first U16 place today and leads now the youngest fleet sharing 88 points with Polish Aleksandra Borucka POL. Third U16 place for Adriana Castro ESP with 114.
Both the boy’s and boy’s U16 competitions are governed now by Greek sailor Athanasios Kyfidis GRE, who won the two races today and leads with 33 points. Compatriot Alexandros Eleftheriadis GRE is second overall with 38. The third place overall is now for Turkish Can Kaska TUR with 49. Overnight leader Davide Nuccorini ITA is now fourth with 50.
Italian sailors Nicolo Cassitta ITA and Luca Centazzo ITA complete the boy’s U16 provisional podium with 61 and 74 units respectively.
Last races are coming tomorrow! Forecast announces more windy action, although a little bit lighter than today, so hopefully we’ll fill Travemunde’s courses with all 380 sailors again 😉
