Jul 2022

First day of races done at the 2022 420 & 470 Junior European Championships in Vilamoura, Portugal.

After a 2 hours delay on shore due to lack of wind, all the fleets started racing around 15:30.

All three 420 fleets sailed together in the same course, while the second course was only for the 470 fleet.

Light wind and flat water were the prevailing conditions, only picking up to 8-10 knots at the end of the last races.
