It was late in the day when the gradient wind kicked in sufficiently to start a race – 5/6 knots – building to 8/9 briefly before dropping – and not possible to start a second race.[more]

Competitors spent the morning chilling out in the warm sunshine, a little SUP, adjusting their rigging, or just generally having a good time! Joao Rodrigues, currently storming the Raceboard fleet, said that when he came to the 1988 youth worlds in Barcelona, there were just a few kids and he finds it unbelievable how many are in Murcia for the Techno 293 Europeans.

Joao was the winner of race three, Ivan Pastor (ESP) and Max Wojcik (POL) now have equal points in second and third place behind him on the leaderboard.  In fourth and fifth, again we have equal points for Romeo Otten from the Netherlands and Spaniard Curro Manchon.

The forecast is looking better for the final 3 days – with a good wind forecast for Friday.
