Europe World Championships

It was a long, hot and not very fulfilling day for most of the 138 competitors competing at the Europe World Championships off Villamoura in Portugal.

With the very modest early morning breeze fading to just a light, but reasonably consistent zephyr - 3-5 knots at most - it was day for the sharp minded light wind specialists and the opportunists. Race winners in both fleets emerged from overnight standings in the 60's. Holland's Carolijn Brouwer now leads overall after taking third place in the only race which was completed today. The yellow fleet race which was won by Nina Ramm-Schmiot, with world ranked No.1 Sari Multala taking third.

In the men's competition Sorel Johnsen (DEN) leads from Manuel Jimenez (ESP).

" It was very difficult conditions today. If you were not off the start line in the front rank and catch the first couple of shifts in wind direction the there was just no way of getting back into contention." Explained Team GBR Europe Class coach Mark Barron.
