Fantastic day in Martigues

Fantastic day in Martigues

With a moderate wind forecast, the teams, come from 30 different countries, were ready for the off. And there was quality racing to appreciate all day long on the beautiful waters of the Etang de Berre. The wind was varying between 15 and 20 knots depending on the cloud passages, with a max of 23 knots rapidly followed by a complete dead zone. Conditions that surely favoured the best tactical sailors, and the lighter weight riders. In any event, five races were run in each category. French competitors Maxime Labat and Gael Cousin are on good form leading the blue and yellow U17 boys' groups. In the girls' U17, race wins have been shared out with five different winners in the five races but Israel's Naomi Cohen is at the top of the leaderboard.

Russian Andrey Zagaynov is a very strong competitor with three bullets and 2 seconds in his group and he leads the boys' 6.8 fleet overall. Italian Marta Maggetti has a perfect score at the top of the girls' 6.8 having discarded her race 3 result. Alexandre Bavarro at the top of the Open Fleet needs to watch his back!
