Third day of racing at Lake Bracciano, Italy where 2018 470 Junior World Championship takes place. Although forecast was not promising, after 15:00 hours south thermic wind kicked in but the direction was variable. Unfortunately, the unsettled wind conditions did not allow the two races of women’s fleet to finish. Men’s fleets and starts were also highly influenced by this fact therefore the Race Committee postponed all races and routed all crews back to shore. No changes in the rankings, tomorrow back in action for crews and RC members with the hope and optimism of more fair conditions for all athletes.
