Sailing conditions changed dramatically on the fourth day at the 2020 Laser Master European Championships in Andora, Italy. Sunny days with light breeze and flat water were over and switched to dark grey sky with 12-16 knots from the East (19 on gusts) and a big 2 metre swell.

Erberto Sibilia ITA (6-14-5-5-3) is fourth overall and 2nd Apprentice Master with 19.

"I had a great time today. I haven't sailed for a while and turning back to the sea was amazing. I will give it my best shot tomorrow. I'm in this fight till the end"", said Erberto Sibilia from Italy.

Elisa Boschin ITA (4-2-6-12-15) drops from 2nd to 6th overall but is still governing the Women's championship with 24 points.

Laser Standards

Masters sailor Adonis Bougiouris GRE (3-1-5-1-1) rounded a perfect day on the water today and holds the Standard championship leadership with 6 points. Second place is for Grand Masters leader Carlos Martinez ESP (4-3-3-7-4) with 14. Third place overall is the second Masters sailor Roger Schulz GER (19-6-6-3-11) with 26.

"During the first 3 days it was disappointing because the wind was really light and difficult to sail. Today was an amazing day with really fantastic conditions! Big waves and strong wind - my favourite conditions. The waves were very big and it was a bit difficult to find the mark so I lost the way to the N3 mark in the second race. I was lucky I had a secure lead so it didn't cost me any places. I think we should have done one more race today. The last day is Thursday and I think I'm very close to winning this championship.", said Adonis Bougiouris from Greece.

Leandro Rosado ESP (1-RET-23-8-2) is first Apprentice Master and ranked 6th overall with 34 points.

Wolfgang Gerz GER heads the Great Grand Master's competition with 44 units and placed 12th overall.

Full Standard results here.

Forecast announces the sailing conditions tomorrow will be pretty similar to today, may be a little bit less wind, so let's wait for more tough and challenging races to decide our new 2020 Laser Master European champions!
