Very nice wind conditions for this 3rd day of racing on the Allianz Championship. Winds around 15-18 knots, sunshine and some very nice fights on the water. The pressure is mounting in the run-up to the end of the championship.

For the 29er, the crew Corentin Goulon and Valentin Alakiletoa are in first place tonight although they are heckling all day long by Emilie Bouchet and Robin Chantrelle's crew. Nothing is certain for third place: only 1 point separates the crew from the Australians to the crew of Camille Goulié and Francois Gboyah.

What will be the podium tomorrow night at your bets?

On the RS Feva side the hierarchy is more respected with a clear domination of the Raphael Bouzigues and Benjamin Benhayoun crew followed by Maxence Kesteman and Virgil Goux Theircelin and in third place the Evan Glidic and Enzo Ardimani crew. On the water, however, the fight is good with tight buoy placements.

For the optimist class, the children also give their maximums, waves and wind move their small boats... The leaders have changed all day long, and finally at the end of the 5 races of the day, the podium is 100% Caledonian with Aurel Martin in 1, Romain Lecoyer in 2 and the first girl, Juliette Babey in third place. Here again, tomorrow's day will be decisive and the tension on the water surface will be decisive.

Tomorrow last day of the Allianz Championship.

Four races to run... the pressure will be at its maximum!... to follow first race tomorrow 9am.
