Two races were completed today at the 2022 ILCA U21 World Championships as Sebastian Kempe and the other sailors got back on the water.
It was another morning without wind, so the race committee displayed the AP flag to start the day. The wind finally filled in around 16:00 with about 6–7 knots, which was enough to get off two races.
During the second race, the breeze picked up to 9 knots, and the race committee was hopeful they could complete a third race as scheduled, but shortly after, the wind died down again just in time to complete the second race. Once again, there were some new names on the leaderboards after today’s races.
Kempe came off the water up three spots from his starting position of in 8th place to 5th place after seven total races have been completed with 52 Net Points.
Kempe sailed to a 14th place finish in the first race of the day and the 6th of the series, before crossing the line 7th in the second race.
Kempe is third in the Under 19 Age Group in the Fleet.
