After a lack of wind on the first day of racing at the 2015 National Championships in Slovenia, the following day brought enough wind to get the fleet out on to the water and have four consecutive races.
A super start for the Maltese team competing with Craig Farrugia Vella at the top of the Leader board and Victoria Schultheis in 3rd place and 1st female sailor.
Richard Schultheis was, unfortunately, black flagged in one race and is presently in overall 10th position.
Antonia Schultheis had a couple of excellent races with a 1st place in the second race and a 10th placing in the fourth race. Unfortunately, she also was blackflagged in the other two races which set her a back a bit in the overall placings that day.
It was a good start for our local sailors with each of them competing up at the top of the fleet. Wishing them all luck for the remainder of the championship.
