Race day 5 report – 2024 ILCA Under 21 Europeans

23854 2

The fifth day of competition concluded today at the 2024 ILCA Under 21 European Championships & Open European Trophy in Majorca, Spain, organised by Reial Club Nàutic de Pollença.

The day started with a two hours postponement onshore due to lack of wind. Sailors were only called to the water for their first race of the day at 13:10, with a 10-knot breeze blowing from the East.

All three fleets had a clear start and commenced racing consecutively. However, the breeze gradually diminished, leading the Race Committee to shorten the course. Only the ILCA 6 fleet completed the original course, with the first boat crossing the finish line after 59 minutes.

With 9 races completed and just one day of competition remaining, the new leaders are as follows.


ILCA 6 Championship

Polish sailor Lilly May Niezabitowska POL continues to show a solid performance. By finishing eighth today in the single race, she further extended the lead over her nearest rival. As the competition enters its final day, she now holds 41 points, a significant 31 points fewer than the second-placed Emma Mattivi ITA from Italy.

Spanish sailor Claudia Adan Lledo ESP is also well-placed for the final day with 82 points and benefiting from a lower discard (30 points compared to Emma’s 45 or Lilly’s 38).

Alice Ruperto ITA (2nd today) and Marga Perello ESP complete the provisional Top 5 with 97 and 99 points respectively.
