Cascais 49er & 49erFx Championship ACT II - Day 3

by Clube Naval de Cascais 10 Jun 20:45 BST 7-12 June 2021

After the rest day, the 49erFX women's Olympic class fleet returned to sea in Cascais. With the first warning signal scheduled for midday, competitors had to wait ashore for the wind to settle in Cascais in order to start the third day of the event.

With the wind from the north-west quadrant and blowing around 14 knots around 12:30, the organisers gave the green light for the start of the day and the competitors put their boats afloat shortly after to start racing at 13:20.

British sailors Charlotte Dobson and Sakia Tidey continue to lead, although by a smaller margin having scorred 7-12-3 today. In second place is the Spanish team or Tamara Echegoyen and Paula Barcelo who after a fairly regular day, 5-5-2, consolidated second place and are now only two points adrift of the British pair. Closing the podium, with another successful day, at 8 points from the leaders, is the team from Brazil made up of Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze after completing the day with a 4-1-4. The top places are starting to take shape, but there are still three races and a Medal Race with double points to go.

The organization chose to advance the schedule in Cascais with the intention of the Race Committee to complete 3 races in the morning on Friday and the Medal Race in the afternoon. The transition from the last race from Saturday to Friday is due to the fact that winds are expected to be too light for Saturday, jeopardizing the likelyhood of this important race.

In total there are five continents represented - North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Oceania - with a total of 19 nationalities will sail in Cascais Bay. The championship takes place in Cascais from the 7th to the 12th of June.

This championship was supported by Turismo de Portugal, Visit Cascais, Cascais Municipality, Portuguese Sailing Federation, Cascais Marina and Vista Alegre. We also have the institutional support of the non-governmental association Sailors For The Sea - Portugal
