2023 ILCA Senior European Championships at Circolo Nautico Andora, Italy - Day 4

by Agustín Argüelles 15 Mar 20:14 PDT 12-17 March 2023

An exciting fourth day of competition at the 2023 ILCA Senior European Championships & Open European Trophy in Andora, Italy. Winds of 18-25 knots and big waves brightened up the today's racing.

The day started with a one hour postponement on shore, so sailors were only allowed to launch their boats at 09:00. Strong wind and waves were already there waiting for the joy of the participants.

The ILCA 6 Women Gold and Silver fleets set off immediately when they arrived on course, followed by the ILCA 6 Men.

On the ILCA 7 course, the Gold fleet had their first start right away, but Silver and Bronze fleets starts were delayed around an hour for the RC to anchor their boat and pin end boats correctly to set the line.

It was a very hard but happy day on water.

Finally all the ILCA 6 fleets returned to shore with 3 new races completed, while the ILCA 7 completed two of them.

ILCA 6 Women

Vasileia Karachaliou POR continues to lead the Women's championships with 8 points after scoring a 1-2-2 today. The second place is for the 7X Senior European medalist Marit Bouwmeester NED (2-4-1) with 11. Third place for Emma Plasschaert BEL (5-3-1) with 12.

Chiara Benini ITA is fourth with 15. Fifth place for the reigning Senior European champion Agata Barwisnka POL with 17 units.
