Recap day 3

Day 3 is the first finals day! There’s more wind than the previous days so the sailors are excited for some action! Around 10 AM all the boats are launching and heading to the race course. Around 11 AM races started in 12-15 knots and again a clear blue sky: Workum is treating us well! The wind dropped again at the end of the day, but plenty races have been sailed.

The wind picks up to even above 10 knots in the end. The Lasers and RS Feva can complete 3 more races, the High […]

OPTIMIST
It’s been busy at their Course A. At first it seems like the sailor where […]
