Light winds in Vallensbaek

Laser European Championships
Vallensbaek

Day two of the Laser European Championships in Vallensbaek, Denmark, dawned another calm day and at one point it looked to be a repeat performance of the no wind scenario from the day before.
Fortunately for the sailors, a very gentle breeze came in of about 5 knots of wind speed enabling racing to get underway. With over 130 boats the fleet has been split into groups, each of the groups completed two races today in very fickle conditions.

With two race wins out of two races, Swedish sailor Fredrik Lassenius was on good form and leads the championships at this early stage. Maciej Grabowski of Poland is five points behind in second place, with a one-point margin over third placed Karl Suneson of Sweden.

With the tricky conditions it was very easy for the competitors to score results deep in their groups as there were holes in the pressure and severe shifts.

Thomas Le Breton (FRA) is leading the Youth fleet after two races. With Phillip Glaser (GER) in second position.

The race committee is hoping for more breeze for day three of the Laser Europeans, which should hopefully even out the racing. The championship continues through until Saturday.
