The penultimate day of the 2023 ILCA 6 Youth European Championships & Open European Trophy regattas concluded today in Gdynia, Poland.
The sailors and the Race Committee faced considerable challenges on the water due to the highly unstable weather conditions. Throughout the day, they encountered a mix of rain and sun, along with unpredictable fluctuations in wind strength and direction. These constantly shifting elements led to the abandonment of numerous races and several APs (postponements). It proved to be a very long and demanding day for all involved in racing.
With 3 new races completed by most of the fleets (Boys’ Silver had 2 and Boys’ Bronze only 1), the following are the new provisional results before Jury’s decisions.
- Emma Mattivi ITA 17 pt
- Roos Wind NED 33 pt
- Petra Marendic CRO 33 pt
- Mattia Cesana ITA 31 pt
- Massimiliano Antoniazzi ITA 38 pt
- Erik Norlén SWE 60 pt
- Gaya Datiashvili ISR 96 pt
- Sienna Wright IRL 118 pt
- Irene De Tomás Perelló ESP 140 pt
- Edoardo del Rio ITA 91 pt
- Omer Vered Vilenchik ISR 96 pt
- Alessandro Cirinei ITA 159 pt
