A short overview of today's sailing and SOSW 2016 overall. Here we are at the end of the 12th edition of Internationat regatta Split Olympic Sailing Week. Three days, in Split Channel, in front of island Ciovo, 54 competitors from 12 countries sailed SOSW 2016. Today strong south-east, which raised up to 25 knots, waited Standards, Radials and 4.7's. Strong so called Jugo caused problems to Race Committee by setting race area, and after 60 min of delay, everything was ready for Standard's first start procedure. Followed Radials and 4.7's. Today all classes sailed two races. The best today in Standard was Tonči Stipanović, YC Mornar although after first race left race area, that decision didn't changed his overall rank. In Radials today victory took Dominik Perković, YC Labud, who is also overall Radial winner, although Russian sailor Elena Vorobeva followed him by the rates, and she is also the best woman in class Laser Radial. In class Laser 4.7 the best on SOSW 2016 is Roko Copić, YC Val Šibenik, following Hana Dragojević, YC Labud. Congrats to all and see you next year!

For Sunday, 17th April 2016, first warning signal scheduled at 10:30 hrs. Possible are three (3) races.
