The Final Day at the 2015 IFCA JUNIOR, YOUTH & MASTERS SLALOM EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS here in Hyeres, Almanarre Plage ended with 5 full eliminations in the women, juniors, youths and masters divisions completed for the championship titles.
The start of the day implied it would be a relaxing Sunday for the competitors but by midday the wind was picking up. With 9 to 15 knots and the course area ready to go the Juniors were up first for Elimination #6 (“if the wind stays stable enough”). 4 heats were successfully completed in light winds and then the youths also completed 4 heats. It was very interesting sailing, as the water was super flat and the winds off shore.
The AP flag was raised as the course area needed to be adjusted before the Masters could start their heats, but with wind readings stubbornly hovering around 7 knots at the start boat it was decided to end the championship with 5 full eliminations in all divisions.
The awards ceremony took place at 16:00hrs.
Congratulations to all Competitors and the Winners and last but not least the entire event crew for delivering such a great championship.
