The Pacasmayo Classic saw the strongest Youth field in the history of the event take to the waves this year, as the strongest Youth field in a generation continues to emerge around the world.

Youth fleets across all the major wavesailing competitions continue to grow in 2019, as opportunities for them to compete continue to expand. Earlier this year the trend was clear with the strong fleets competing in the Youth World Cup events in Japan (IWT), then Pozo and Tenerife (both PWA), and now here in Peru (IWT). Once again we have seen the largest and most talented fleets of young riders that anyone has seen in 20+ years in all of these events. ….( more )

No racing on day 3 of the Hellenic Formula Festival - fire in the nearby mountains prevented the race committee and competitors from going to the water. Instructions from the Coast Guard were clear - the racing area within Marathon Bay had to be kept clear for fire-fighting aeroplanes to drop in and pick up their load to fight the flames. ......( more )

A very calm morning welcomed the competitors on the 4th competition day. Luckily enough some wind came through by the afternoon and the races could continue. The light winds caused for lots of cancellations of heats, and some difficult racing situations in winds from 10 to 12, and at sometimes 11 to 14 knots. 

The Juniors, Youths and Girls managed to accomplished yet a few more rounds of racing while it was the masters who suffered with multiple cancellations of the A final throughout the entire afternoon. ......( more )

Day 3 yet another day with light racing conditions enough to get some action going as top ranks shuffle across the Junior, Youth and Masters divisions. It was high tension today with several OCS, Protest hearings and General recalls making the light conditions exciting for spectators, the race officials and on some occasions time consuming for the jury members. 

In the Masters we have seen several general recalls and, with the delay later in the afternoon, again the finals could not be completed. Already missing out of the A finals are the Turks; Bora Kozanoglu, Talat Asikoglu and Erkan Morgan and now leaving the door wide open for someone to claim victory in elimination #3. ......( more )

Fabienne Hoogendam from Holland and Italy's Francesco Scagliola dominate Youth divisions after 2 racing days. The light to medium wind conditions spiced up the Masters and Juniors divisions, calling for close battles action and crowded first mark rounding on the second competition day.

Day 2 continued after a similar situation as the first day with the winds slowly building up towards mid day. The first heat of the day could start at 11:30 with the Masters B Final which was won by the Greek Philip Adamidis and completing the results of the first elimination of the championship. ......( more )

It's been quite a week here at the 2019 Techno293 European Championships. A fascinating range of wind conditions, hot sun, tight racing, a great "Olympic Village" welcome and atmosphere giving a real sense of occasion, and all that in the beautiful surroundings of one of Israel's very best beach locations, a Sea Nature Reserve into the bargain. ......( more )

After yesterday's big-out, with the weather totally un-feasible for any kind of sailing, it was back to the reality of serious racing on day four here in Michmoret, Israel, as we enter the final phase of the 2019 Techno293 OD European Championships. And the weather gods smiled a big smile, light to moderate winds blessing all four fleets with near-perfect race conditions as they resumed the quest for European Champion glory.   ......( more )

Welcome back to Michmoret Emek-Hefer Sailing Club in Israel, where the locals have made every effort to make these a Techno293 European Championships a one to remember. And everyone, competitors, Race Committee, coaches, spectators, will remember the curve-ball the conditions threw our way today.
After two days of calm sea and light-to-moderate winds, we'd had a forecast of something a touch more demanding in terms of waves for today's third day of the five scheduled racing days. But we woke to a sight of waves crashing on the harbour exit, not the best for racing, not for Juniors or Youths, and as it turned out, not for anyone. ......( more )

Michmoret: a fantastic place to sail, and a fantastic day to be sailing. Sunny skies, crystal sea, golden sand, and enough wind to ensure a full second day of racing here at the Techno293 European Championships 2019, where we are guests of the Emek-Hefer Sailing Club in the heart of a Sea Nature reserve that is more beautiful than you could possibly imagine.

The lucky young sailors who have entered enjoyed a great day's sailing, with all fleets fighting out three more rounds of intense but fairly-fought racing, moving all four ladders forwards and beginning to point to the likely podium positions and our eventual 2019 Champions. ......( more )

The very least you can say is that it's been a fascinating first day of competition racing here in Michmoret, Israel, at the Techno293 European Championships. Conditions have been good, and all the young competitors wanted just one thing to happen, for the action to start.

The Race Committee sent the Junior Fleets out early this morning in fairly light winds, as planned to avoid racing in the heat of the day, for the scheduled three rounds of races, with nine more to come. The Juniors were totally up for it and the level was very high, they put on a great show with some exciting finishes. Then all back to the beach for some lunch, shade and down-time. ......( more )
