470 European Championships 2007
Thessaloniki, Greece

Although rain and thunderstorms left Thessaloniki, again there was no wind for racing on Wednesday at the ISAF Grade C1 470 European Championships. The Championship has been underway for three days now, and only on Monday were three races completed.

This morning, light winds from land dropped and made place for just a very light and shifty breeze from sea. Sailors waited for hours, but as the wind kept dropping in the late afternoon, the Race Committee decided to call it a day.

The final series should start on Thursday, but have been postponed at least until four qualifying races have been completed. The first start for race 4 has been rescheduled from 14:00 to 13:00 hours, to create more space to finalize the qualifiers.

After Monday's three races, Alvaro MARINHO and Miguel NUNES (POR) lead the men's fleet, with Stefanie ROTHWEILER and Vivien KUSSATZ (GER) top in the women's.
