Lietuva (Llthuania) took line honours at 14.10.21
UTC today, some 46 miles ahead of Fujimo (USA) who is expected to cross early
tomorrow morning and arrive into Gdynia at around 0800 UTC (10.00 hrs local
Positons in all classes have remained the same
since the earlier schedule, as follows:
In Class A, Dar Mlodzievy (Poland) is leading
Mir (Russia) with Fryderyk Chopin (Poland) in third position, all on corrected time.
In Class B, Tecla (Netherlands) leads, ahead of
Johann Smidt (Germany) with Brabander (Lithuania) in third position, all on corrected time.
4 Oceans’ Dream (Poland) leads Class C, ahead
of Villa Mare (Finland) and Smialy (Poland) all on corrected time.
In Class D, Lietuva leads, ahead of Fujimo
(USA) in second and Lady B (Poland) in third position, all on corrected time.
At the time of reporting the wind in the
vicinity of the communications vessel was WSW 20 knots, with a rough sea
state. However at the rear of the fleet
the wind continues to be light, and the
Race Committee has therefore reluctantly decided that, because of the slow
progress of the vessels at the back of the fleet, and with the prospect of the
wind decreasing further overnight in the northern part of the area, the Race
Time Limit will be brought forward.
The new race time limits are:
0400 UTC 1 September for Class A, 0430 UTC 1 September for Classes B, C and D.
This allows the radio schedule to
be conducted as normal tomorrow morning.
