Today in Marseille, the 4th day of racing for the 49er and 49er FX sailors attempted to take place in difficult light winds. The Semifinals took place today where the top 20 boats for both the 49er and 49erFX each tried to race 4 races of only 20 minutes. This intense racing is a test for a possible format request by the class for the 2016 Olympics. Luckily the Mistral finally hit Marseille yesterday.
Magic Marine is supporting the class to help deliver live tracking and a new Tour de France style Magic Marine Green Jersey competition. Winners for day one in the "Green Jersey" Magic Marine Starting Point Competition Griselda and Sara from Singapore (SIN 396)
