Van Aanholt Overcomes Fright

Odile van Aanholt with Elise de Ruyter (NED) surged into the lead just two days after Odile was hoisted off her boat in a frightening incident at the windward mark. The Dutch pair took the low points of the day by a wide  margin compared to the other top teams, and now hold a 20 point lead.

In light winds that were always unsettled they scored two top 10’s as many top teams fought through Black Flags and results in the 20’s, before they won the final race of the day to take command of the regatta.

The Schulteis sisters (MLT) had been unflappable until this point, but started with a BFD and then had a 17th and a 19th to score more points than they had on the rest of the regatta combined. They sit in second overall, which is a remarkable achievement in any case, as they aren’t even really a team, or racing in their planned positions. Helm Antonia is off to full time university and not pursing the Paris Olympics, while crew Victoria is actually the normal helm but switched over to crew as her sister just jumped on the boat to help her get started this week.

Canada’s Lewin-LaFrance sisters were the only team with two top fives on the day, unfortunately, also with their second black flag in a row. UPDATE – the RC reviewed their tapes overnight and determined that Canada and FRA 123 (Lovadina / Riou) were not Black flagged, and each team was given redress for not being able to participation in race 10 instead.

So far conditions have been light to medium all week, but the forecast for day five is for breeze into the high teens, which may shake up the leaderboard yet again.

Consistent Run of Races Continues for Fischer and Graf (GER)

Only one race was held for the 49er gold fleet. Prettner and Flachberger (AUT) took the win.

It was Tim Fischer and Fabian Graf (GER) in second who took the overall lead. Remarkably, it was the Germans seventh consecutive race in the top four, a remarkable run in fleets of 30 boats.

Most of the top players had decent races, so the battle remains tight at the top and gold fleet racing will determine this years European Champions.

White and Urwin (GBR) win the day

Rupert White with Kirstie Urwin scored a pair of third and won the middle race to move up from ninth to third overall. Gimson and Burnet (GBR) continue to lead despite scoring their worst race of the regatta on the first race of the day. Racing continues until September 19th. https://49er.org/event/2021-european-championship/

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.
