There are 22 racers from 8 countries, 2 continents, racing in 2 heats of 11 competitors. After registration on Tuesday it was possible to run just two races.
On Wednesday the first heats were started in shifty (30-40 degrees) and gusty winds of 15-20 inots. After 2 heats the race committee decided to send the competitors to the beach to wait for more stable wind. When the Race Committee tried to start race 4 later in the day the wind dropped below the 11 knots minimum and AP over A was hoisted.
Gonzalo Costa Hoevel from Argentina is currently in 1st, Bora Kozanoglu from Turkey is in 2nd, and Andrea Rosatti from Italy is in 3rd. Today (day 3) we are not racing as there is no wind. The Race Committee made the right decision this morning to cancel racing and give the competitors the opportunity to explore Paros. The whole day has seen shifty winds of 4-6 knots
The forecast for tomorrow looks promising - a southerly wind should provide a very exciting racing. Should be high winds, waves, and the race will be just offshore.
