A full days racing on the final day

Great racing conditions on the last day of the European Championships in Cagliari, Sardinia, ensured the full programme of scheduled races was completed.

At the close of day 4 it was still an open championship - with titles to be won and lost in all divisions.

In the under 15 boys only 2 points separated first and third placed sailors! In the under 17 girls it was 4 points, but silver and bronze medal places were only separated by a tie break.

The Gold medal placed under 17 boy recovered from a poor start in the first race of today to clinch his first European title. Only in the under 15 girls did the eventual champion finish the regatta with a clear lead over the evenly matched silver and bronze medalists.

Congratulations to the race committee, under the leadership of Franco Pagliarini, for 12 superb races for the young windsurfers from 16 countries, and to the dedicated team of volunteers assembled by the Windsurfing Club Cagliari.

Well done to all the competitors for great spirit and camaraderie throughout the championship.

Only one race was possible today for some of the divisions at the T293 Europeans in Cagliari, Sardinia.

Whilst the under 17 boys enjoyed a relaxing day on the beach, the under 15 boys were first to be called out to race after an initial postponement. It was necessary for them to complete one race so that the the 6 race qualification series could be completed and the final split to Gold and Silver be made.

It was difficult conditions, and different from the previous day - with very light and shifty winds the order of the day. As a consequence, the results did not follow the pattern of the previous 2 days - and top finishers appeared from throughout the top 20 in the current rankings. This pattern was repeated in the only other race of the day for the women's divisions.

For the final 2 days the boy will race in their allocated Gold and Silver fleets - with under 17 boys and girls scheduled to start first tomorrow.

Under 15 boy -
1) Mikita Tsirkun (BLR 714)
2) Olmeta (FRA 152)
3) Giuseppe Zerillo (ITA 999)

Full Results - U17 Boys & Girls / U15 Boys & Girls / Open

A very full 2 days of racing at the Techno Europeans . . .

Variable conditions faced the competitors over the opening 2 days of racing at the 2011 Techno European Championships, hosted by the Windsurfing Club Cagliari in Sardinia.
6 races have been completed by the under youth competitors - boys and girls that are under 17 years of age. The junior division, for those under 15 years of age, have completed 5 races.

The lighter winds and flat water that faced the young racers on Monday were replaced today by more challenging conditions - with winds gusting to 20 knots, 2 metres swell, and waves breaking on the beach.

The under 17 boys have been racing a qualifying series, and from tomorrow they will race in gold and silver fleets; the under 15 boys have one more race to complete qualification for the gold fleet and a chance to be on the podium at the close of the championship.

The girls schedule is less complicated but no less challenging; and at the half way stage there is still a big battle for medals.

Here are the top 3 places in all divisions at the close of racing today:

Junior Girl
1) Emma Wilson (GBR 461)
2) Delphine Jariel (FRA 800)
3) Euginia Bologna (ITA 10)
Junior Boy
1) Mikita Tsirkun (BLR 714)
2) Yoav Omer (ISR 294)
3) Mattia Onali (ITA 134)

Youth Girl
1) Emma Labourne (GBR 719)
2) Shahar Tibi (ISR 606)
3) Marta Maggetti (ITA 157)

Youth Boy
1) Baz Bell (ISR 619)
2) Bautista Saubidet (ARG 401)
3) Philippe Lafay (FRA 43)

What a fleet for Techno 293 European Championships!

It all started with the great North American Championships in Cozumel, Mexico in February. Then the Europeans in team racing in Palermo in May. Many national and international regattas to prepare for the spectacular World Championships in San Francisco in July.

But summer for the Techno 293 kids is not over yet. It's October and some parts of Europe are already covered in snow but the Techno endless summer continues in Cagliari, Sardinia. Great location and 250 kids again on the start. They will fight for the European titles.

It's sunny, it's warm, wind is blowing. Everybody is excited and ready to have fun . . .
