    Mistral Europeans - Day Two - Afternoon
    Posted On:  12/05/2003 19:30:01

    The unstable weather conditions surely tested the race committees´  and sailors´ patience and nerves as it was almost impossible to forecast the weather for the next few hours. After a short break on the beach, they asked all the competitors to sail to their racing areas again.

    The wind direction was unstable, this time coming from the East and was again at about 6-8 knots.

    They managed to hold a race for each of the men’s fleet, but after two  general recalls, the  AP flag (due to the lack of wind) was hoisted for the women and they were sent home.

    So after a very long day of racing and waiting on the water, all competitors have finally finished 3 races in two days.


    We are looking forward to better conditions in the coming days.


    Ciao Aline and Magda
