International Classes - Kiel Week - Kiel GER - Day 3
The Kiel Week of the non-Olympic classes (plus Star) continued yesterday in a 15-20 kn breeze according to program. Passing clouds created ongoing considerable wind shifts and yesterday again, a thunderstorm terminated racing late in the afternoon. Polgar/Koy GER in the Starboats, Hunger/Kleiner GER in the 5o5s and Robles/Trittel ESP dominate their classes winning all 9 races each so far (9 of 10 races for the 29er). The 420s continued racing in Gold- and Silverfleets, and at the end of the day, Nadia Horwitz/Francisca Fuentes CHI showed up on rank one, followed by Charles/Charles ESP and Goedhart/Van Stekelenborg NED on the ranks 2 and 3. Eenkema van Dijk/McDonough USA had their worst day so far and descended on rank 7 overall, 15 points behind the podium after 9 heats. No change in the Contender racing, where Sören Andreasen DEN leads in front of Andrea Bonezzi ITA. The new leader in the Europes is now Sylvain Notonier FRA two points ahead of Gustav Petterson SWE. All ranking lists and the daily report.
