A fleet of seventy sailors from twelve countries that were sailing on the 10th anniversary edition of the international sailing regatta Split Olympic Sailing Week, didn't have much luck with wind today. At first the delay was displayed, and the start ,planned for the noon, was prolong for two hours. First to cross the starting line of the race field in front of Ciovo were sailors of the class 470 at 14:15. At the time there was about eight knots of maestral but as time went by so did the wind !

In the end of all classes, finn, 470, Laser Standard and Laser Radial, managed to finish one race, third overall in the regatta, but the Lasers had to shorten the race field.
- However, we managed to finish the third race and about 16.30 we signaled for all to return ashore – summarized the events at sea Judge Zlatko Jakelić , one of the Jury members led by International Judge Marianne Middelthon from Norway and our chief judge Alen Kustić .


Weak wind todaywas best used by Tonci Stipanović , a member of Mornar who only fortified his title - No. 1 - on ISAF 's ranking among Lasers by adding the third victory , and thus the first place overall in SOSW - in . He is closely followed by his club colleague Filip Jurisic , while in third place is Poland's Kacper Zieminski .
Convincingly in front of all other crews are crew from JK Trogir Ante Botica and Jure Vuletic, who were fastest among the class 470. They are followed by Turks Sebahattin Tora Kutoglu and Abdullah Baglica , as well as third-placed brothers Gergely and Daniel Bihary from Hungary.


In the Finn class , the change at the top occurred due to illness . In fact , our best sailor is Labud's Ivan Kljaković - Gaspic , on the first day had easily reached number one position in both races , but dropped out of todays race due to high temperature, so the leadership took another Labud memeber Nenad Bulgarin .
As for the Laser Radial the current World champion Tina Mihelic (Labud) had a great start of the regatta however during the second race had problems, including damage to the hull, and today failed to take the victory although still has the lead overall !


So today among the Radial Fleet( 21 competitors in total) celebrated Mario Novak from JK Split in front of Ana Zelic from Labud and her brother Miro.
Thus, in the first two days of sailing tenth SOSW, Croatian sailors proved to be rude hosts – keeping all the best places for themselves. And how will the guests handle below sailing in the fourth Race remains to be seen. The next race is scheduled to start Tuesday at 11 am , Weathermen are calling a storm that will intensify in the afternoon!
