Sardinia Grand Slam – Day 2
The second day of competition at Sardinia Grand Slam has come to nothing. Unfortunately, the wind conditions did not allow regattas to take place.
The conditions have been since the morning not suitable for a regatta, with a north-east gradient wind that prevailed on the thermal breeze coming from the south. Immediately after lunch the wind turned, was in the right direction and arrived at 8/9 knots. The conditions seemed perfect but they really lasted too little to allow the start of a race.
The provisional ranking remains unchanged with Nico Parlier with 3 points followed by Maxime Nocher with 4 points. Third, seconded to 7 points, the British Connor Bainbridge. Among the women, first Daniela Moroz, followed by Steph Bridge and Julia Damasiewicz.
Forecasts for tomorrow say less gradient wind from the northeast. The thermal is much more prevalent than today and about 8/10 knots are expected. The skipper meeting with the athletes is scheduled at 11.00, the first possible departure at 12.00.
The Sardinia Grand Slam is organized by Good Looking Entertainment with the collaboration of the Yacht Club Cagliari, which deals with technical sports coordination, under the auspices of the IKA (International Kiteboarding Association), and with the contribution of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia with the Department of Tourism and the City of Cagliari with the Department of Sports.
