Laser European Championship
Split

After a long day waiting for wind with no success, the youth and senior fleet went out to the Adriatic sea to try to sail 3 scheduled races.
All fleets sailed their first race in a West South Westerly breeze (Mistral) of about 10 to 12 knots.

During the second race, only 3 of the 4 fleets were able to finish because of the dying wind. The last Youth fleet could not even get started.

After some time waiting the Mistral became a Tramontana, clearing out the sky and changing to a North Easterly direction. Finally the Tramontana became a Bura, blowing from North North East. The Race Committee could again set up a new race course and both fleets sailed their races under an increasing wind speed up to 30 knots in the last part of the last start.

Sailing was not easy for both fleets in these unpredictable wind conditions. Full results are available on the event website at the address below.
