The iQFOiL European Championship struggled to complete one heat on day 2 of the event in Marseille.
The 68 women and 141 men to set off on the water to their respective racing areas, and the two committees, who were waiting for several hours, were quick to launch the first start on a slalom-type course.
Unfortunately only two starts in the men’s race circle and two in the women’s race were ultimately launched.
But the westerly wind of 7-8 knots did not last very long, falling to 3 knots at the end of the course, making it impossible to complete the men’s race.
In the end, only one race was completed for the first group of women, the second having suffered the same fate as in the men’s round and everyone was sent back to shore.
Only Lucy Kenyon of the British competitors managed a race, finishing tenth.
