The ID2CA 2018 European Championship took place 4-9 September in Portoroz, Slovenia, a famous sailing spot and a well known tourist destination.
The weather was almost Mediterranean - warm and sunny, except a short interval on Friday 7/9, but the wind was very light sea breeze from 6 to 9 knots. Due to this the race committee had difficulty carrying out the planned racing program. So on Wednesday 5/9/ three courses were conducted with wind up to 8 knots and on Thursday 6//9 three more courses were conducted with lighter sea breeze. Read More . . .
