2017 470 Junior Worlds - Day 3

Wednesday, 30 August 2017

Gentle southerly sea breeze started to fill in the race area around 11 o’clock, and by noon, it was almost 10 kt.  However, this sea breeze was slowed down by the small front which passed the east side of the racing area.  The wind was up and down in strength, and also shift from 160 to 180 degrees at random.

There were many general recalls, both Men’s and Women’s fleets.  RC hoisted AP flag just before the start many times.  Coaches asked some questions after the race, ‘What is the philosophy behind this AP?  When RC can not read the sail No. of all recalled boats?’  Mr. Stanislav explained,  ‘Sailors mistake or RC’s mistake.  If the line is square to the wind direction, RC reads all the Nos, and BFD.  Wind shifted, and it is no longer square, then, RC’s mistake, and that was when RC signaled AP today.’

Nippon boys & girls had a good day as Takayama/Kimura, boys, won R6, and Tanaka/Kudo, girls, won R7.  Now, Takayama/Kimura in 2nd position.  Macchetti / Dantes, FRA, are leading.  They seem to like the heavy wind, but they were also good like today’s medium condition.  Both teams got 1-2 today, so the competition between them will be very tight towards the end.  3rd is also the French pair of Pirouelle / Sipan.

Italy’s Di Salle/Dubbini dropped to 7th after DSQ from R6 by protest and R7 BFD.  The Spanish team of Mas/Barcelo are more comfortable today as they are so consistent.  Japan’s summer is very humid, and different from Europe.  They were running out of the drinking water towards the end and asked about it to the people around on the water.
