We had a fantastic fifth day of racing at the 2022 EurILCA Senior European Championships & Open European Trophy in Hyères, France.

Three new races were held today by all the fleets, with shifty and patchy 8-12 knots of breeze. Many ups and downs made the sailing conditions very tricky for all the 350 competitors, with significant changes in the standings.

The ILCA 7 championship counts now with ten races in total, while the ILCA 6 Women counts with nine. The ILCA 6 Men fleet counts with eight races.

With the last day of competition coming tomorrow, below are the provisional leaders in all four Senior Europeans at stake.

The event will finish tomorrow with three scheduled races for the ILCA 6 Men and Women, and two for the ILCA 7.

Remember you can follow all the three Gold fleets live through the tracking system, see the full results and each day's photo gallery.
