Olympic Worldcup – Act 3 – Genoa ITA – Day 3 – only Laser Radials with Isabella Bertold CAN 3rd, as well as one 49er fleet were racing

Again a day with almost no wind in Genoa yesterday, and it can hardly be understood, why the innocent World Sailing (responsible as Organising Authority) dislocated the European Worldcup event from the wind-safe Hyères FRA with its perfect infrastructure and organisation to this wind-risky Italian major city. Only the Lasers Radial and one 49er group could sail at least on race in a 3-4kn wind. — For the Lasers Radial sailing in two groups, it was the first race of the competition. The day winners were Line Flem-Höst NOR and an Maud Jayet SUI. On the 2nd ranks of their groups followed Anne-Marie Rindom DEN and Vasileia Karachaliou GRE.Tatjana Drozdovskaya BLR and Isabella-Anna Bertold CAN finished 3rd each. — The 49er yellow fleet managed to complete one race as well with Fantela/Fantela CRO (ranks UFD/1/1 so far) winning, but with the second fleet results missing, the overall rankings remain unchanged, as this is the case in the Nacra 17 and 49ersFX. The 470 Men and Women as well as the Finns will have to wait another day to get their competition underway. — All ranking lists and the daily news, as well as all North American results.
