IRC, Classic Yachts, Wally - Les Voiles de St-Tropez - Day 2

They returned to the harbour without valid races. On St-Tropez Bay however, there was a light thermal breeze just right for the 120 'Classiques' ('Marigold', the oldest, was built in 1892), and all classes completed one race each. The Wallys too sailed a race along the Pamplonne Beach.

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.
