2 more races on day 2 of competition at the T293 Europeans in Eilat
Posted On:  30/10/2013 16:00:42

A further dramatic change in wind conditions affected the racing schedule on day 2 at the Techno 293 Europeans in Eilat.

Israel command 1st place in only 3 divisions, but increase their overall dominance in the total podium positions!

The unpredictable light winds of day 1 gave way to no wind halfway through the morning session on day 2. Only the Youth Boys (under 17) were able to complete their scheduled 2 races before the Principal Race Officer called a halt to proceedings and abandoned the race for Girls and Junior (u15) boys.

Quite rightly the sailors were sent ashore to wait for suitable conditions for racing to come back.

Eventually conditions improved, with the (unusual) south wind kicking in, and the final race of the day got underway.

Significant changes emerged at the conclusion of race 4 in the Junior division, but nothing changed at the top for the Youths.

Junior (u15) Boys:

1) Itai Kafri (Israel)
2) Guy Sitin (Israel)
3) Geronimo Nores (USA)

Junior (u15) Girls:

1) Lidia Sulikowska (Poland)
2) Yarden Isaak (Israel)
3) Katy Spychakov (Israel)

Youth (u17) Boys:

1) Daniel Harari (Israel)
2) Ofek Elimelech (Israel)
3) Oleksandr Guncharenko (Ukraine)

Youth (u17) Girls:

1) Shoval Ravitzki (Israel)
2) Noy Drihan (Israel)
3) Paz Mali (Israel)
