Wild conditions out on the water on day two of the first Eurosaf 69F European Championship. The mistral really made a statement and the cool NW breeze, after a pretty early dock out at around 8am, has never ceased to build and from 15 knots to 20+ in less than a hour.
We managed to get four races in and we are wishing the sailors a good night of rest, because tomorrow we go again for some more races! The last ones who will determine the first 69F Eurosaf European Champion. At the top are more than tight with three teams having a total score of 159 points.
Huge congrats to Katana Sailing (SUI) for winning the boat of the day award yesterday and to FIN1 Racing (FIN) for winning it today!
