RS100 European Championships day 2

by RS100 Sailing on 31 Jul 2014
. .
The signal to launch came at midday and the RS100 European Championships fleet set out towards the Eastern Course with a steady force four Northerly ‘Pela’ wind. The first race of the day got underway with Michel Rotach (Swiss) leading at the windward mark closely followed by Andre Blasse and Al Hall.

As the wind continued to die the race was abandoned shortly thereafter much to the relief of Huw Powell and Blasse who were then languishing some way back after finding wind holes on the course.

After a short interval a force five set in unexpectedly from the South as dark storm clouds approach (these are becoming the norm this week)…. the race team then had to turn the course around (not an easy feat in Garda) and the race finally started. Huw Powell established an unassailable lead at the windward mark which stayed in place for the rest of the race. The early finishers were granted a result with Cotgrove just squeezing past Rotach on the line for the minor places. The rest of the fleet were counted in their positions on the course as they were out of time becalmed.

So Powell leads with two bullets, Cotgrove second, Alberto Zamo third and Hall fourth. The fleet are hoping for perhaps a better weather tomorrow!
