Sail-World.com : ISAF Olympic Womens Skiff Trials move into their fourth day
ISAF Olympic Womens Skiff Trials move into their fourth day

'FX and RS900 - Womens Olympic Skiff Trials, Santander, Spain'   
The trials being conducted at Santander, Spain for the Olympic Womens Skiff and Mixed Multihull are now in their fourth day, having got underway on 17 March.

The first two days were marred by not enough wind, or too much.

The ISAF blog for the event reports: It was a good day of sailing on the third day of the 2016 Equipment Evaluations as the sailors had their first full day of sailing, allowing the panel to check out the equipment in various conditions.

Rainfall greeted the sailors during the morning session but with the wind blowing steady between 10-15 knots sailors got out onto the water to test the equipment.

The afternoon session saw a variable breeze from 5 up to 12 knots with some of the sailors racing each other.

And at the end of the day there were a lot of happy faces.

By the close of play tomorrow many of the sailors would have sailed every boat and have an understanding of how each boat works. As the week goes on there may be an opportunity to sail outside of the bay.

New Zealand crew Alexandra Maloney and Molly Meech have travelled a long way to get to the evaluations but have looked comfortable on the skiffs sailed so far. Meech said, 'So far it’s been good here but it’s been quite cold. It was good sailing today and great to get out on the water. Rio 2016 is a goal of ours and that is our aim. We definitely want to sail in the skiff.'
