No luck today for organizers and crews at the 470 Europeans, organised by local Yacht Club Sanremo and Marina degli Aregai, in co-operation with the national and international 470 class.

Since the early morning hours, and despite a sunny sky and a warm temperature, the wind conditions with a gusty breeze exceeding 40 knows, looked too tough to enable any racing for the men/mixed and women crews participating to the European championship.

Organizes and race officials constantly monitored the situation, but shortly before 6 p.m. had to give up and were forced to display the AP flag.

With six fleet races concluded, the top ten teams therefore move directly to the medal races. The first warning signal is scheduled for 11:00 for the women, followed by the men at 11.45.

It's interesting to note that the standings are so close that almost all the crews have a chance to grab a medal, making it for a super exciting and dramatic medal race to the 470 Europeans.
