Wind returns at Star Eastern Hemispheres
Published on May 4th, 2018
Trieste, Italy (May 4, 2018) – A cloudy, sunny, and rainy day, with an east-north-east wind blowing first (bora) and a north-west wind after, in the most changeable weather ever, set the stage for the first three races of the Star Eastern Hemisphere Championship 2018 held today for teams coming from 17 nations.
The teams were on the water for eight hours until the sunset, in order to catch up the races that were not held in the two previous days. With racing to end tomorrow, just one more race (the fourth scheduled) is needed to consider the championship valid. A fifth race could enable the exclusion of the worst score of the races held for each team in the overall ranking.
At the top of today’s ranking after three races stands the Italian team consisting of Diego Negri-Sergio Lambertenghi, who clinched a first, a second and a fourth place, followed by two USA teams: Augie Diaz-Bruno Prada (2-5-3, today) and Jack Jennings-Frithjof Kleen (4-1-11).
Racing is planned for May 2 to 5.
