29er Eurocup Day 3, an exceptional day of racing at Riva del Garda: five races completed with winds of 16 knots and an impassioned fight for a place on the podium. Change of leadership in the standings with Steffens- Braukmann of Germany taking the lead. Climbing into third place is the crew Kelapanda-Thakkar of India. Tomorrow the conclusion.

Despite it being Autumn, it was an exceptional day for wind on Trentino Garda a day which had been well perceived by the technical staff of Fraglia Vela Riva, the organising club and by the regatta committee. They had studied the weather forecast and had predicted the early arrival of the wind from the south.

The crews were sent on the water at 11. 00 am with the race course positioned further to the left than usual to make the most of the gusts registered in that part of the lake. Even with the stronger winds compared to the previous two days (16-18 knots), the young crews of the 29er fleet from nine nations aged from 14-17 years, had no difficulty in handling and taking charge of their vessels. Five exciting and highly skilful races were completed bringing to a total of 12 races completed out of the 14 scheduled with one day of competition still remaining.

After the ninth race (the second of today), there was an upset in the leaders board with Germans Jasper Steffens and Tom Lennart Braukmann taking over the lead from Munro-Harris of GB. Their performance was decidedly brilliant despite having a black flag for a false start in regatta 11. This was duly compensated in regatta 12 with a fine win. The Germans now hold an eight point lead over Brits Munro-Harris. In third place are Kelapanda-Thakkar of India who took advantage of the false starts committed by Bonilla-Chapon of Spain, to climb in the standings one race at a time. For this crew their maiden voyage on Lake Garda has certainly been a positive experience! The first female crew is that of sisters Munte-Carrasco of Spain who lie in tenth place overall.

With two races to go (racing conditions for tomorrow permitting), the fight for a medal remains heated not only for the prestigious Eurocup title, but also for the prizes at stake offered by Fraglia Vela Riva and their sponsor Hannspree. The crews who reach the podium will each win a Hannspree TV!
