A lack of wind brings a disappointing end to a fantastic week of competitive sailing here in Tavira, were the youth champions of Europe have been crowned and awarded their medals and trophies.

Having enjoyed such a fantastic week of good winds and sunshine, the wind really let us down on this the last day of competition, although we still had the sunshine to enjoy. The medal races had been scheduled to start at 12.00, but there was not even 1 knot of wind at the designated time, so postponement was followed by postponement. Patience is a virtue learned by sailors at a young age, and waiting for the wind is as much part of the sport as revelling in a strong breeze.


As fleet racing comes to an end and we move towards the medals races, some sailors are looking confident to win gold, while others still have a lot to do.  It will be an interesting day on Friday.

Yet another glorious day greeted the athletes competing in the EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championship, but this time the wind was not so kind, initially blowing lightly from the north and then slowing coming around to the south west, at the same time increasing a little in strength.  It was, however, not an easy wind to read, which was reflected in some of the results. Because of the changing wind, the start of racing was delayed a little, but not as much as was feared earlier in the day, when the forecast suggested it might be a late afternoon start.


After three days of exciting racing, the leaders are beginning to emerge from the fleets, as the EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championship passes the halfway stage and France edge into the lead in the Nations’ Cup Team Trophy.

A third day of perfect sailing conditions is making this championship one to be remembered not just by the competitors, but also by the volunteers who are organising the racing.   Today the winds have been in the region of 10 – 15 knots and the sunshine continues to pour down from wonderful clear blue skies. A fantastic advertisement for Portugal and the Algarve.


Fantastic sailing conditions for the first day of competition at the EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championship.

After a splendid opening ceremony yesterday evening, right in the heart of Tavira, the first day of racing dawned with absolutely clear blue skies and winds in the region of 10 knots, forecast to increase up to 18 knots during the afternoon. By late afternoon all classes had completed three races, allowing sailors and officials alike to enjoy the wonderful late afternoon weather.


The EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championship starts tomorrow, Monday 5th August, in the waters off the picturesque Portuguese town of Tavira, and continues until Friday 9th August, when the under 19 sailing champions of Europe will be crowned.

Many of the best young sailors in Europe have gathered in Tavira, Portugal, to compete in the EUROSAF Youth Sailing, Europe Championship, for which racing starts on Monday 5th August. Today, Sunday, there has been a practice race, in what were fantastic conditions, sunshine and 15 knots of wind! This is the second occasion EUROSAF have organised this multi-discipline Continental Championship for sailors under the age of 19 (on 31st December this year), and using the same equipment as that utilised in the ISAF Youth Sailing, World Championship.

Some 14 European countries have sent their sailors to compete in eight different disciplines, including girls and boys single-handed and double-handed dinghies, plus sailboards and a high performance dinghy. The equipment being used is the Laser Radial, International 420, RS:X sailboard and the 29er skiff.



Universities from Italy, France, Germany, Slovenia, Poland, Russia and Great Britain, met under the burgee of Associazione Vela Lago di Ledro, Italy, and at the invitation of the European Sailing Federation (EUROSAF), to compete for the European University Match Racing Championship. Nine teams competed for the title EUROSAF European Champion, on this the first occasion the championship has been held.

A unique aspect of the championship was that it also incorporated some two-boat team racing, a fairly new discipline within the sport of sailing, but one which is rapidly gaining a foothold. This sub-section of the championship was eventually won by the German team from Hamburg University, led by Florian Haufe, and all who competed recognised this as an enjoyable distraction and fun experience.
