Finn U23 World Championship - Day 3

Sebastian Kalafarski of Poland confidently won the only race possible on the third day of racing at the 2017 U23 Finn World Championship.

However Facundo Olezza of Argentina still holds a 13-point advantage at the top. Luke Muller from USA moves up three places to second while Brit, Henry Wetherell drops one to third.

After a day of waiting around on shore for breeze the fleet was finally sent out mid-afternoon as a light southerly slowly developed.

The left side paid with those starting at the pin in the leading group. Joan Cardona, from Spain, rounded first from Luke Muller and Sebastian Kalafarski, who started at the boat end.

The main group went right on the run, which allowed Kalafarski to sneak through to leeward and round the gate ahead.

He locked into the lifting shift up the second beat and was untouchable from then on, holding a nice lead at the top and down to the finish in the gradually fading wind.

Lars Johan Brodtkorb, from Norway, caught the leaders on the second upwind to round second. Cardona crossed in third. Wetherell was best GBR, finishing eighth.

By this point the wind had evaporated in the hot Balaton air, but the race committee persevered and 40 minutes later a new breeze arrived.

However it didn’t last long and after one false start, the fleet was sent home soon after.

Expectations for a sailable wind on Friday are small. Already the start time has been delayed until 12.00.

There is a chance some breeze could develop during the afternoon, but it depends who you listen to and for how long.
