Mixed Racing Conditions on Day 3 in Denmark
Posted On:  13/09/2018 13:01:21

Another great racing day in Hvide Sande with a tricky mixture of weather, gusty wind conditions and multiple delays during the races. The competitors experience distress on making the right decisions on equipment selection, due to the shifty winds that blew from 15 up to 20 knots across the racing area throughout the day.

Women division: Fulya Unlu from Turkey finds her phase winning 2 eliminations to secure her second place in the rankings on the third competition day. Finland's Marianne Rautelin is now in 3rd position with 16 points. Sarah Jackson from Great Britain (#4) and Maja Dziarnowska (#5) from Poland are both closing in on Marianne with approx 7 points away from the 3rd podium position. The current event leader Jenna Gibson, fighting a flu, made a comeback winning the last elimination.  With the lighter winds scheduled for tomorrow we could see some exciting racing in a whole different racing scene.
