Techno 293 World Championship (Youth Olympic Games Qualification)
Sopot, Poland

After six races qualifying for the finals of the World Cup Techno293 Ergo Hestia Cup, competitors in the U17 boys and girls and U15 boys have now been divided into two final fleets- gold and silver - for the rest of the championship.
At the end of day three all the boys and girls fleets have competed eight races. After the wind and waves of the day before the day was very calm. That's really good, because not all players are accustomed to such strong conditions. "In India, it is usually constant wind blowing about 13 knots. Yesterday's weather conditions really surprised us"- says the coach of India.

Israeli Elemeleh Ofek (18 points) is a candidate to be World Champion 2013. The battle between him and Oel Pouliquen (FRA) is really exciting. From the beginning of the competition it has just been the two of them securing a permanent place on the podium. But now Saubidet Birkner Francisco (ARG) has joined them showing excellent form.

In the u15 boys the situation is unchanged. The boys leader remains Yoaf Cohen from Israel with a score of 10 points after eight races.

Russian Elfutina Stefania did not give a chance to her rivals, and with score of 10 points is first among girls u17. Unfortunately Ma Kwan Ching from Hong-Kong did not have a good day. She was the leader of the first day of the race, and overnight had occupied the second position.

Three girls u15 unchanged. Italian Georgia Specials took a second and first and thus kept the lead with 13 points.

"We came here to gain experience and have fun. Today it is just great!" said the German coach. "The place is beautiful. And people are helpful and friendly," added the coach from India. "Great organization, great place and preparation for the championship. But we have better weather- we are from Greece! "- joked the Greek's coach. In such an atmosphere, the organizers decided to organize for the first time in history a race for the coaches!

They sailed in the afternoon. And the winner was the coach of Hong Kong.
