Olympic Equipment Trials - Valencia ESP - Day 4

 Olympic Equipment Trials - Valencia ESP - Day 4 Yesterday, the first mixed-classes races were held at the One-Person-Dinghy trials in Valencia ESP in a well-established seabreeze. The fastest underway was the Laser World Champion Pavlos Kontides CYP on whatever of the four boats he was racing. The best impression made the Devoti-Zero, especially also among the women's boats, winning all races. However, Luca Devoti ITA (Finn Olympic Silver medalists), will hardly have a chance with World Sailing, because he was the one to initiate the anti-trust claim critizising the builder monopoly of existing and possible future Olympic classes.

By the end of 2020, the Star Sailors League, intends to incorporate all of the Olympic classes but won’t stop there.
