Expert Olympic Garda 2004

This morning the competitors were greeted by a grey mist over lake Garda and no breeze at the ISAF Grade 2 and 3 event. Most classes left the dock on schedule between 8am and 9am, but the northerly "Peler" didn't kick in as usual.
With a very light wind, only the Star and Yngling fleets were able to complete two races. The Race Committee had no choice but wait on the water until racing for the
remaining classes was finally called off at around 12.30pm, when all the competitors headed back to shore.

In the Yngling class, the crews battled for the podium right until the very end. The final victory went to Schuemann-Buelle-Lippert (GER) with 41 points total, followed by Giakoumidou-Dimitrakopoulou-Mantzaraki (GRE) with 42 points, and Stegenwalner-Koschinsky-Grunow (GER)with 47 points.

Italians Conti-Baroni-Marenzi, third overall yesterday evening, were unable to make it to the podium and finished fourth with 49 points.

In the Star class, Roy HEINER-Alex BREUSEKER (NED) confirmed their lead with two victories in the last two races of the event and a total of 22 points. Pelekanakis-Kondogouris (Greece) were able to reach the podium with a ninth and a fifth placing in the last two races and two discards; also the Italians Celon-Lambertenghi were able to reach the top three with a seventh and a second placing in this last day. Westergaard-Neergard (DEN) and Shaiduko-Smirnov (RUS), who last night were second and third, came fourth and fifth overall.
