Star World Championship at Troense Bådelaug, Denmark - Day 5

by Mette Heide-Jørgensen 7 Jul 2017 06:45 BST 29 June - 9 July 2017

Without any wind in the harbour on Thursday morning, the sailors were anxious for the race of the day. So were the race management, and after a deep study of the weather forecast, the starting time was postponed by 1½ hours.

The wind speed (and the temperature) slowly increased and stabilised around 8 to 9 knots when the race started and, with only a minor change in wind direction during the race, the sailing conditions were just perfect.

After a general recall, all boats were lined up for a black flag start and the race was on.

During the final tack to the top mark, the wind direction across Lunke Bay became uneven in favour of the boats close to the coast, resulting in a a tough conclusion.
