Fleet Split For Final Day Tomorrow
International Easter Optimist Regatta
Today, Easter Sunday, the 264 young competitors had two races to sail. It was cloudy but there were also some sunny spells. The wind started from a northerly direction, mostly 4-8 knots, but tended to shift west.
At the end of the day two races were completed, both shortened for the last starting groups, due to lack of wind (first race) and major wind shifts (second race). All scheduled races have been completed now, so we have the Gold, Silver and Bronze fleet for the two final races to be held tomorrow to decide the victor of the 19th International Easter Optimist Regatta.
At present, of 12 competing countries, Sweden and the Netherlands still seem to have the best teams, having in total nine sailors in the top ten after five races.
