Ioannis-Christos Mouzakis (GRE) and Donna Mazzucchelli (ARG), new leaders in the 2017 Optimist European Championship after the second day in Bourgas

The second day of qualifying races in the 2017 Optimist European Championship in Bourgas, Bulgaria, has closed with two additional races.  It was a less windy day, with a slight delay in the start of the first race, but ended up with magnificent conditions (8-12 knots) offering very technical races that introduced new leaders in the Boys and Girls fleets.

In the Boys Fleet, Ioannis-Christos Mouzakis (GRE) is the new leader after the two races completed today for a total of 7 points. Ioannis-Christos had finishes of 2nd and 1st respectively and is now followed by yesterday’s leader Santiago Palkin (ARG) who had a 6th place and a 2nd place today to finish up with 10 points. Blake Wilson (AUS), who sailed well to get a 1st & 5th today, is third overall with the same total points score as Palkin. Only 8 points separate the top 6 competitors in the Boy’s Fleet.

Donna Mazzucchelli (ARG) is the new leader in the Girls Fleet. Mazzucchelli completed the two races today with 1st and 3rd place finishes for a total sum of 7 points. Cosima Schlueter (GER) is only 1 point behind Mazzucchelli after finishing with a 3rd and 2nd place today for a total of 8 points.  8 points back in 3rd place overall is Alsi Akbeniz (TUR) having finished 7th and 4th for a total of 16 points.

Tomorrow, August 3rd,  is the third day of the qualifying series with two races scheduled for the Boy’s Yellow, Blue and Red Fleets and the Girl’s Yellow and Blue Fleets.
