Slingsby continues to dominate Laser Europeans

Australian Tom Slingsby continues his dominance in the European Laser Standard Championship with his fourth first place finish in race 5.

The start of race 5 was delayed slightly due to a large commercial ship entering the port forcing the sailors to wait ashore. Once onto the race area a strong current and steady wind of 10 knots provided a challenging race. The first start resulted in a general recall but got away the second time with four black flags issued including Diego Romero (ITA). The remaining two fleets left the start cleanly with wins for Matias Del Solar (CHI) and Tonci Stipanovic (CRO).

In race 6 the current was almost slack and turned during the race, leading to a challenging final leg for the last fleet as some sailors had difficulty reaching the finish line. With a nine knot wind the first fleet started cleanly. The red fleet started second and had to be recalled but then restarted cleanly the second time. Finally, the yellow fleet had a clean start but with two black flags issued. As the races progressed the wind dropped to six knots.

Race 6 winners where Diego Romero, Jean Baptiste Bernaz (FRA) and Joaquin Blanco Albalat (ESP).

Two bullets bring Sarah Blanck up the leaderboard in the Laser Radial Women's Championship.

With wins in race 5 and race 6 Sarah Blanck (AUS) moved into fourth place overall. Challenging race conditions with a strong current and winds ranging from six to ten knots meant the European Laser Radial Women's Championship saw several changes in the overall positions at the end of day 3. Sari Multala (FIN) took second place in race 5 maintaining her overall lead whilst Katarzyna Szotynska (POL) scored a second place in race 5 followed by a win in race 6 moving her from sixth to third overall.

Two bullets help Jon Emmett recover his place at the top of the leaderboard.

Day 3 saw Jon Emmett (GBR) recover his overall lead with two first places from Wojciech Zemke (POL) who also took a 1st place in race 5 and now sits only one point behind Emmett in second place overall. With only one black flag and one OCS for the two races the Men's Championship was managed well in the challenging conditions.
