Last day, last post (or maybe not after all as I do like blogging !). One race is expected today, the opportunity to change the ranking. Stay connected and you will know everything about this last day of the SYWoC 2008.
Update 2.02pm : I am sorry not to have published news before but I was on the comittee boat for the first time in the week. But now I am going to tell you everything about the race of this morning !
Very nice start for the 11 teams under a sunny and pleasant weather, with a wind of ~18 knots. The Irish team reaches the first place in the ranking very soon, after a fight with the Italian team in front of the start line. The Irish sailors manage to keep their leadingship troughout the race and they win the last round of this Student Yachting World Cup.
