At the end of racing on day 3 the boys’ fleets were split into Gold and Silver for the last two racing days. However, just 1 race today for the under 17 boys Gold fleet and two races for the youth fleet as the strong mistral wind returned, once again keeping competitors on the beach.[more]
First finishers were Gael Cousin FRA 753, Kiran Badloe NED 194, Kieran Martin GBR 926, Maxime Labat FRA 0 and Stuart Hards GBR 597.
This now means that Gael is in first place on the leaderboard, knocking Maxime down to second. Kiran Badlow of the Netherlands has equal points to Maxime but a worse discard. Fingers crossed that the wind gods are kind tomorrow – it should be an interesting battle at the top.
Jerome Pasquette won the first race of the day so he is now in bronze position in the Raceboard Youth Fleet, Louis Giard holds on to second place, leaving Thomas Goyard – who won the second race today – at the top of the leaderboard. Last day of competition tomorrow . . .
Yet another excellent video has been produced by Patrik – “Friends Forever“. As well as racing footage, he talks to coaches to find out how they give kids the chance to live their dream whilst having a lot of fun.
