day04-morning-01

We can say the coldest morning in the five days of the regatta Split Olympic Sailing Week. The temperature get lower, but therefore there is enough wind. Today we expect two more races. The first start is scheduled for 11.00 am, and weather forecast announces Bura strength around 20 knots, so we hope todays races will be sailed quickley, a total of seven of the regatta, enough to reject the weakest standing.
After completion of the planned race, immediately on return from the sea follows announcement of the winners, the most successful awards in four categories.

PRESS RELEASE

The participants of the tenth edition of the international sailing regatta Split Olympic Sailing Week They enjoyed the third day!
Bura filled the sails of the seventy sailors from 12 nations, so two races were sailed in record time. Although in the morning everything in front of Split's Labud, host club of this traditional race for Olympic class, gave notion that it isn't going to be a great day for sailing eventually the rain stopped and the wind picked up. Two hours after the scheduled start at 11 the job was done promptly.
Although some crews were in trouble, some had to swim for a while, others had equipment problems, and some had to go ashore, but one constant remains - the best of the first two days of sailing today cemented their position at the top. So Nenad Bugarin, 21 -year-old sailor from Split's Labud, today finished with one first and one second place , which gets him the lead in the Finn class .

Racing committee decided it was enough for today. It was great, sailing conditions (about 20 kts N Wind) made perfect day for competing on sea in front of Split. Competitors are coming back in, it was litle bit cold out on race area, so they can't wait to have a hot meal and warm up here in YC Labud.

Forecast for tomorrow is very high North wind (Bura), so tomorrows racing is quite questionable if we rely on forecast, but we hope for couple of hours when sailors could go out, and take last chance to improve their score on a last day of SOSW regatta.
