The Sailing World Cup was held in Qingdao and similar to the weather conditions in Sheboygan, the weather here also made the sailors wait for day three as the first two days the weather remained unfavorable for sailing.
This was similar to the conditions that were witnessed in 2008 when the Beijing Olympic Games were held. Sailors at Quindao had to meet with tricky weather elements such as currents and cloud cover. Not only did the visiting sailors suffer, but also those who were competing as part of the host nation. They also made mistakes and lost out points.
In the Laser men category Croatia remained on top of the fleet. Tonci Stipanovic was able to hold off Coccoluto who was trying to gain above the Olympic medalist. The Cyprus team made some bad starts in the beginning, but they recovered and finished in the second as well as the fifth place. The team admitted that they made certain mistakes in the beginning. However, when the current was strong they were able to move into fifth position. The forecast was said to be similar in the coming days with light winds and strong current. However, when the sailors went out to the waters, it was not found to be so. They found favorable conditions for sailing though cloud cover kept coming about and pressure and wind shafts kept moving up and down. (more…)

The twenty six totally covered, hurricane-rated boat slips each come with a 2-story storage adeptness along with an enwrapped garage as well as additional car parking.
