49er & 49erFX Europeans - Silver lining on day 5

Penultimate day of the 2018 49er & Nacra European Championship in Gdynia, Poland with dark skies, rain and fog and mist

Defending 49er champions, Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell, came out of the murk to move back into contention, finishing behind Lucas Rual and Amoros Emile of France and moving to third place overall.

Local heros Lucas Przybytek and Pawel Kolodzinski took a sixth to keep a 3 point lead ahead of Spain's Diego Botín and Iago.

After a long wait, the second 49er start was abandoned.

Thanks to the unstable weather, the women's 49erFX fleet never left the beach. They will sail their finale for the European Championship Friday with the other classes.

Spain's Carla and Marta Munté have an eight point lead from Helene Naess and Marie Ronningen of Norway, with Britain's Sophie Weguelin and Sophie Ainsworth just one point back in third place.
