Great sailing conditions we had today in Cádiz for the fifth day of racing of the 2023 ILCA 4 Youth European Championships & Open European Trophy.
Races started at 12:00 as per scheduled with the first start for the Gold fleets in both courses. The wind was around 10 knots during the afternoon, increasing a little bit in the end for the last races. These great conditions allowed the Race Committee to run 3 new races per fleet.
Boys count now with 10 races on scores, while girls count with 9.
With only one day to go, the following are the provisional results in the Gold fleets;
