Most of the races (8) was performed in the first day. The wind was blowing at top rig A - bottom rig B level. There was often grass on the fin and rudder. It was not seen from the shore, but when the boat suddenly stops - you understand - that's it.  This year turkish sailors have much improved their skills and equipment. That's why the grass and other accidents lead immediately to loose of 2-5 places. I was unlucky this day having almost in each race some different trouble. At the end of the day I was 8th.

Next day there was 3 full races and one heat B sailed under light wind conditions. My performance was better with 1, 2 and 6 places, however, the wind stopped to blow after midday and the races were over this day.

The third day only one heat was performed. I had troubles with the wires and that's why didn't attend it. Then the wind stopped blowing and the event was closed.

Final results are following:

 

Congratulation to winners!
