Three Undefeated at Swiss WIM Series
Published on November 1st, 2018
Ascona, Switzerland (November 1, 2018) – The Swiss International Women’s Match got some racing in on Lago Maggiore today in spite of the weather. By noon, the heavy rain finally went down to occasional showers. A local wind from the Maggia – Vally developed just in front of Ascona.
The wind was shifty, patchy and windspeed varied between 2 and 7 knots. Racing could finally start and the wind allowed the race committee to complete 4 flights. All teams could sail between 2 and 4 matches.
Pauline Courtois (FRA) / Match in Pink by Normandy Elite Team, Trine Palludan (DEN) / Team Kattnakken, and Claire Leroy (FRA) / Mermaid Sailing Team are so far unbeaten. But given the small number of matches that each team sailed, the ranking can still change quickly. Taking a penalty in the light wind conditions takes it’s toll and can decide a match.
The weather forecast for the remaining days promises mostly dry weather with overcast. Light local winds are expected and the first start for Wednesday is scheduled for 0900 in the hope to complete the round robin stage by the end of the day.
Racing is scheduled for October 31 – November 3, 2018.
