vessels crossed the finish line early this morning prior to the revised time
limit and end of the race - local ship Dar Mlodziezy - pictured – Lady B (Poland) and Fujimo (USA).
In Class A, Dar
Mlodziezy leads, followed by Mir (Russia) and Fryderyk Chopin (Poland) all on
(Netherlands) has held her lead in Class B, but Brabander (Lithuania) has moved
up into second place, with Johann Smidt (Germany) falling back to third place
on corrected time.
In Class C,
another local vessel, 4 Oceans’ Dream (Poland) leads, ahead of Villa Mare (Finland)
on corrected time. Third position is not
listed as there has been no report from Smialy (Poland).
In Class D,
Lietuva (Lithuania) remains ahead of Fujimo (USA) on corrected time, with Lady B (Poland) and Elena (Russia)
having not reported.
It appears that Lietuva, who took line
honours yesterday evening, may have been pipped at the post by Dar Mlodziezy
for 1st overall on corrected time, although positions remain
provisional until all declaration forms have been submitted.
The decision to
bring the race time limit forward was made yesterday in light of the lack of
wind in the area at the back of the fleet.
Those vessels would otherwise have been unable to reach Gdynia in time
for the start of the festivities.
The new race
time limits were: 0400 UTC 1 September for Class A, 0430 UTC 1 September
for Classes B, C and D.
