Optimist European Championships 2015 - Day 4.

The qualifying races were yesterday completed in strong winds and large swell. The fleet of these young kids really showed what they are capable of by managing to cope in these conditions. One has to admire them.
Croatia's Palma Cargo and Great Britian's Rory Harper ruled the day, expertly handling the conditions, to end up leading their respective groups.
Qualifiers over and the fleet have now been divided into Gold, Silver and Bronze classes for the boys and Gold and Silver for the girls.
Within the Malta team Matthew Micallef and Jake Satariano made it into the Boys Gold fleet and Victoria Schultheis made it into the Girls Gold fleet.
Richard Schultheis is racing in the Boys Silver fleet, whilst Lucas Le Gault and Kane Seychell are racing in the Bronze fleet. Gaby Mifsud and Antonia Schultheis are both racing in the Girls Silver fleet.
Below shows the tough conditions yesterday.
