Racing at the Optimist European Championships in Crotone in Southern Italy was postponed this morning again after a long postponement yesterday after which one race was sailed in 25–knots and large seas. The event opened last Friday.
The conditions so far have not been to the liking of Ireland's very young team comprising mostly 12–year olds but all are having a fantastic time, according to team reports.
So far, four races have been sailed in both the girls and boys fleet.
The top Irish boy is Michael Crosbie in 68th out of 185 boys with Leah Rickard best of the Irish girls in 32nd from 120 following a fantastic second in race two.
After five races the fleets will be split into Gold, Silver and Bronze for Wednesday and the final day on Thursday.
