Optimist European Championships
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

A further two races were sailed today in 15-18 knots with waves of up to 2 metres (a lot when seen from an Optimist!)
Three boys are tied at the top on 14 points with Gijs Pelt (NED) the only European. A few points behind is local hero Joaquin Blanco, son of the Finn medallist of the same name. Four British sailors in the top 30 emphasise the strength in depth these days of their national fleet. North American champion T.J. Tullo had an excellent day and may move up if the winds strengthen to the 25 knots promised for tomorrow.
Conversely the leading girl, Spaniard Agueda Suria Palop, could not maintain yesterday's form and may prove vulnerable as the regatta progresses.
12 races are scheduled.
