The 2018 Star Europeans Championship officially started yesterday evening with theOpening Ceremony at Flensburger Segel-Club, but it was today that the battle on the water had its first go today.
Conditions on the first day of sailing were just right, with wind ranging between 8 and 12 knots, only a little shiftier than expected. With an unusual sun and clouds mix for this summer day, the 71 boats started together on one big start line. The unsettled wind direction made it difficult to decide the favorite side, and there were lots of positions’ changes in both races.
