Day 4 - Challenges with little wind.

The stabilization of high pressure on the peninsula complicated things on the Desenzano regatta course, where Day 2 of the 2024 Desenzano FISU World University Championship Sailing, an event organized by Fraglia Vela Desenzano in collaboration with FISU, ended with partial completion of the program.

After a patient wait, Fleet A managed to complete two tests during the afternoon, while Fleet B stopped after completing the first. We remind you that the sixteen registered teams, representing fourteen Nations, are divided into two groups that vary every day and compete against each other by racing in fleets of eight on board identical Dolphin 81s.

The ranking, drawn up net of the second race played by fleet A, sees Alec Coleman’s Canada 2 holding on to the lead with a one-point advantage over Ange Delerce’s France. Alfonso Palumbo’s Italy 2 rises to third place, but it should be underlined that the third achieved in the first regatta was followed by a sixth in the second, which will be counted tomorrow when the B fleet equalizes the scores.

Tomorrow, the day that will mark the conclusion of the qualifying series, the teams will start racing at 9.30, obviously weather conditions permitting. The objective is to complete an identical number of tests for both fleets in order to proceed with the division between the Gold and Silver fleets.

From the Gold fleet, in the final series on Sunday, the name of the winner of the 2024 Desenzano FISU World University Sailing Championship will emerge and will be celebrated during the awards ceremony scheduled for the afternoon.
