Riva del Garda (TN) – Day 2 at the Lake Garda Optimist Meeting was milder and sunnier, which on one hand was appreciated by the many tourists compared to yesterday’s weather, on the other the 1.400 sailors racing enjoyed lighter wind for less time. The Cadets managed to fully conclude the third race (two sailed on day 1), while on the Juniors course the yellow and blue fleets managed to sail the second race – the other Junior fleets had too light wind to continue.

A challenging competition is going on in the cadets’ top positions: Manuel De Asmundis reached temporary first place with 1-4-1. Clara Lorenzi (CNB) has also climbed a position gaining second place overall and first among girl, only one point away from first overall. Mosè Bellomi, the other sailor from Fraglia Vela Riva, is lacking behind on third place, eight points behind Lorenzi. On the following positions are Hungary, Germany with the second girl Catalina Feussner, Denmark, Switzerland, and Italy again. After the exclusion of the worst scoring it will be possible to understand the possible final top three sailors, who will give their best in the final race on Sunday gold fleet.

The Juniors ranking are not being processed: the today’s fleets which did not manage to fully sail the third race (today’s second) will start racing again of Saturday morning at 11:00 (ranking uptade >
