RS Aero European Championship at Fraglia Vela Malcesine - Day 3

by RS Aero International Class Association 22 Aug 2019 00:56 PDT 17-23 August 2019

Day 3 started with a blast of 30 knots descending from the mountains producing large waves at the 08:30 start time. Racing was postponed in the hope of an ease in the conditions.

The fleet's patience was duly rewarded with three fantastic races in the northerly breeze and some excellent surfing waves later in the day. Racing started with 18kn wind speed which slowly dropped to a medium breeze through the afternoon.

Tim Hire (Great Britain) won the day in the RS Aero 7s with a 2,2,1 to jump up to 5th overall whilst Craig Williamson (Great Britain) retains the overall lead. Liina Kolk (Estonia) led the day in the RS Aero 5s with a 2,1,1 to close within 4 points of the series leader, Attila Banyai (Hungary). In the RS Aero 9s Greg Bartlett (Great Britain) continued his winning streak with a 1,1,1 to extend his lead.

Thanks to our sponsors Rooster, Selden, RS Sailing and RS Sailing Italia another daily awards ceremony was held awarding achievements, and some noteworthy under achievements, throughout the fleet. The Rooster podium bibs were redistributed and the daily Top-Tips generously offered by the day's winners.

The fleet spent the evening dining at the FVM clubhouse enjoying the beautiful outlook over the lake towards the magnificent cliffs opposite.
