British Charlotte Dobson and Sakia Tidey continue in the lead although they lost punctual distance to the competition having made 7-12-3 today. In second place is the Spanish team Tamara Echegoyen and Paula Barcelo who after a fairly regular day, 5-5-2, consolidated second place and were two points from the highest place on the podium. Closing the podium, with another successful day, at 8 point from the leaders, was the team from Brazil made up of Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze after completing the day with a 4-1-4. The top places are starting to take shape but is no one game yet there are still three races and a Medal Race with double points to go.

After the rest day, the 49erFx women’s Olympic class fleet returned to sea in Cascais. With the first warning signal scheduled for 12:00, competitors had to wait ashore for the wind to settle in cascais in order to start the third day of the event. With the wind from the northwest quadrant and blowing around 14 knots around 12:30, the organization gave the green light for the start of the day and the competitors put their boats afloat shortly after to start the races at 13:20.

The organization chose to advance the schedule in Cascais with the intention of the Race Committee to complete 3 races in the morning on Friday and the Medal Race in the afternoon. The transition from the last race from Saturday to Friday is due to the fact that winds are expected to be too light for Saturday, jeopardizing the performance of this important race.

In total there are 5 continents represented – North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Oceania – in a total of 19 nationalities will sail in Cascais Bay. The championship takes place in Cascais from the 7th to the 12th of June. 12 races are scheduled plus a Medal Race that will count double points for the final overall.

This championship was supported by Turismo de Portugal, Visit Cascais, Cascais Municipality, Portuguese Sailing Federation, Cascais Marina and Vista Alegre. We also have the institutional support of the non-governmental association Sailors For The Sea – Portugal

Arrival and Quarantine Information

The teams can arrive as early as they like. However we, as PYA will finance their mooring in the Gdynia Marina only from 2nd of July (the starting date of the whole GSD). Before that they will need to discuss leaving their equipment in the Marina with the Marina managers, which should not be a problem.   The current Polish restrictions are as follows:   Rules for travelers coming to Poland from the Schengen area   Travelers will be quarantined unless they test negative for COVID-19. The test will have to be performed no later than 48 hours before crossing the border. Test type: PCR or antigenic. The new rules will apply to all means of transport: collective and individual transport as well as crossing the border on foot. Travelers who have been quarantined in Poland will be able to take a test, the negative result of which will release them from quarantine.   Rules for travelers coming to Poland from outside the Schengen area   Each traveler will be placed in quarantine. A test performed in the country of origin of the person will not be released from quarantine. Travelers who have been quarantined may take a test in Poland, the negative result of which will release them from quarantine. Test type: PCR or antigenic.   The vaccine will release you from quarantine   People vaccinated against COVID-19 will be released from quarantine. This will apply to people who have been issued a certificate of vaccination with a vaccine that has been authorized in the European Union.

For competitors from outside the EU:

Legally, Polish borders remain closed for travelers from outside EU. But, there is a permit for sports: 9. foreigners whose arrival takes place in connection with the participation, as a competitor, member of the training staff, doctor, physiotherapist or referee, in international sports competitions organised on the territory of the Republic of Poland by an international sports federation operating in Olympic or Paralympic sports or another recognized by the International The Olympic Committee or organized by an international sports organization with a continental range belonging to such a federation or a Polish sports association, as well as accredited journalists, after documenting to the Border Guard officer the fact of the competition, the date and nature of participation in a relevant letter issued by the organiser of the competition or certified by the Polish sports association competent in given sport. Each of these cases is considered individually by the Polish Border Guards. So sailors from outside of EU that would like to join the event, need to provide a scan of their passport and details about their flight (or other way of crossing the borders), preferably directly to Anna (email Anna Kuder <a.kuder@pya.org.pl>). She will let the Border Guards know about our event and try to obtain permits for the crews.
