Annemiek Bekkering and Annette Duetz (NED) held on to their lead in the 18-boat 49erFX fleet and their teammates, Bart Lambriex and Pim van Vugt, advanced to the top of the leaderboard in the 31-boat 49er fleet.

Just two out of three races were completed in the 49erFX, and Bekkering and Duetz extended their lead with a third and a race win.

Meanwhile, the new Dutch pairing of Odile van Aanholt and Emma Siewers grabbed their first race win of the week and now sit in second.

Describing their day right after racing, van Aanholt exclaimed, “It was fun. Challenging.”

The pair followed up their victory with an eighth, which they discard, and are a point clear of Marla Bergmann and Hanna Wille (GER).

van Aanholt continued, “We were looking to see where the wind would come from next. It kept us on our toes. We weren’t expecting the north easterly that came in but grateful it did.

“We had a good start and focused on doing our own thing and it worked for us.

“When you get to a location like Palma, sailors already know what they have to do and what’s going to happen. Here [in Medemblik] you never kind of know and always have to try and figure out the next step.”

Van Aanholt campaigned for Tokyo 2020 with Marieke Jongens but narrowly missed out on selection, with Bekkering and Duetz doing enough to take the spot.

The partnership with Siewers is fresh, new and exciting and Medemblik marks the start of their journey. “We’re a relatively new team,” commented van Aanholt. “We teamed up in December and our aim is to do well at the Oman World Championship, so everything we learn here we’ll look to take with us.

“We want to do the best we can. We’re learning a lot in the light winds.”

In the 49er, Lambriex and van Vugt started the day with an 11th but hit back with two race wins, and they put that down to the change in conditions.

Lambriex explained, “It was quite a weird day because we started with a stable onshore breeze. We did the first race but then the wind came from offshore so it was a bit more shifty and gusty. That went a bit better for us.”

Overnight leaders Lucas Rual and Emile Amoros (FRA) struggled in comparison to their opening day and picked up a 10-10-(21) scoreline that relegates them to third.

Jakob Meggendorfer and Andreas Spranger (GER) sit second.

Kevin Fischer Guillou and Noé Delpech (FRA) won the first race of the day and are fourth.

Racing continues on Friday 11 June from 11:00 local time.

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.
