Race report 5 - 31 August PM

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 time). 

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.
