Raceboard Youth & Masters Worlds
Posted On:  12/06/2013 06:54:30

Day three of the Youth and Masters Worlds in Monfalcone dawned bright and sunny . . . and calm. However, the breeze kicked in during the afternoon enabling two races to be run, albeit in marginal planing conditions.

Pawel Gardasiewicz (POL-102) continued his domination of this light wind racing with two more bullets and Czech Radim Kamensky took second place in each. German Grandmaster Frank Spoettel took two thirds, bringing him up to fourth place on the leaderboard. Paco Wirz, third yesterday, had to make do with two fourths but maintains his third place overall.

Likewise in the youth fleet, Giuseppe Zeriolo (ITA-312) also took two bullets today. However, there was a little more competition between Daniel Blinnikka from Finland and Marcos Guidez from France who took a second and third each. Their positions remain the same as yesterday on the leaderboard.

Even if the wind is reluctant to join the party, the hospitality at Windsurf Marina Julia is second to none and competitors and friends are certainly enjoying the atmosphere.

A frustrating day 2 at the Raceboard Youth and Masters Worlds for both competitors and race committee. The first possible start scheduled for 11.30 was delayed until early afternoon as the wind eventually shifted into the right direction for the thermic breeze.

One race was possible before the wind dropped and began to swing back to gradient wind direction. Competitors were sent ashore to await improvement, which eventually came and out they went again. But, once again, the wind eased off and delayed the start of race 2. Sadly no improvement led to the end of racing for the day.

Master Pawel Gardasiewicz (POL-102), winner of the first race, said it was a great opening to the championship. Even though not enough wind to plane it was very nice to race with friends, he had a very good start and maintained the lead throughout. In second place was Grandmaster Karel Baranek from Slovakia, followed by Italian Paco Wirz.

Giuseppe Zerillo (ITA-312) heads the youth fleet, with Daniel Blinnikka from Finland in second and Marcos Guedez from France is third.

12 countries are represented at the Raceboard Youth and Masters World Championships taking place at Marina Julia, Monfalcone, Italy this week. Sunny skies and warm weather, but only light breezes ahead of an afternoon storm, meant no racing has taken place yet but competitors have had plenty of opportunity to catch up with old friends and discuss new concepts before the event opening ceremony.
