Olympic Worldcup 2016 - Qingdao CHN - Final results

Apparently, our yesterday's report about the World Sailing Olympic Classes Worldcup Event in Qingdao CHN did already contain the final results. Considered by World Sailing 'the pinnacle of elite racing', this Regatta was not only a non-event considering the participation, but even more a flop considering the media work ... no reports, no photos, no videos .. not to mention a real-time GPS positioning or livestream !
As expected, the Rio Olympic Silver Medalist Tonci Stipanovic CRO was the winner in the Lasers Standard, and Dongshuang Zhang CHN was the superior first in the Lasers Radial. The two Laser fleets were the only ones with a certain international participation.
All ranking lists and the final report.

 Windsurfing - PWA World Tour 2016 - Wave - Klitmöller DEN - Day 4 Yesterday, the bad luck with wind and waves at the Danish West Coast persisted. There was some hope that competable conditions with 20 knots of wind would fill in, and for a while, the wind did arrive, but unfortunately the swell never built to a suitable level to allow the contest to begin.The forecast for today looks promising with a 16 to 18 kn wind. On Sunday however, the final day of the event, the fresh wind from the shore will not produce any waves again to start the competition. Today or never !
