First Day of Techno 293 Plus Worlds Starts with a Fight
Posted On:  17/07/2017 09:03:15

It's a World championship and it's never easy. The first day started with a fight, but unfortunately it was a fight of frontal wind against the usual sea breeze that appears here normally. That caused some delay and the scheduled starts had to be postponed until the late afternoon..

Around 17:00 the "Youth Men" fleet, divided into 2 groups "yellow" and "blue", were out and they sailed one race each.  After that conditions got unstable again and the RC decided to call it a day.

The results for this first day of competition:

1/ Alexander KALPOGIANNAKIS (GRE) Blue group
2/ Mateo DUSSARPS (FRA) Blue group
3/ Aurelio TERRY-VALLE (ESP) Blue group

1/ Fabien PIANAZZA (FRA) Yellow group
2/ Mathurin JOLIVET (FRA) Yellow group
3/ Finn HAWKINS (GBR) Yellow group
