Split’s city lights were coming on as sailors returned home after day four
at the Finn European Championships, but it didn’t matter, as two late races
meant that it is now a valid championship, something that earlier in the day
looked highly unlikely. Race three winner Daniel Birgmark (SWE) takes the
overall lead from Jonathan Lobert (FRA) and defending champion Ivan
Kljakovic Gaspic (CRO). The second race of the day was was won by Rafa
Trujillo (ESP) Held on shore again due to light winds and thunderstorms earlier in the day
until 12.30the fleet set out to wait under a hot sun and in no wind for more
than four hours. The locals predicted the ‘Jugo’ wind would arrive at around
17.00 and at 16.55 the breeze started to build and the 97 Finns were
rewarded with two great races in 10-14 knots of breeze. More.
