“The wind was light, between 7-11 knots, which meant a lot of ‘pumping’ was required.” This is a special and very intense cardio technique for windsurfing in lighter winds. In our current fleet, everyone can physically “pump” for no more than 35-40 seconds, usually such a long “pumping” phase occurs after the start, when everyone tries to gain an advantage in the distance. It is really very physically intensive and very tiring, my heart rate rises to 170-180 at that time, which is over 90%. to my maximum limit”, shared Rytis Jasiūnas after the finish.

For the IQFOIL windsurfing class, the first three races were held in the upwind-leeward distance, the fourth, when the wind calmed down even more, in the slalom distance. After all four races, R. Jasiūnas ranks 23rd among 108 competitors, but only 4 points separate him from the top 20, and only 6 points from the 15th. This shows that in the distance the fight is really very intense and every point is fought for, which also determines several positions.

Juozas Bernotas, also representing Lithuania, is in 54th position after 4 races.

The sailors of the ILCA 6 and ILCA 7 yacht classes, who started the battles on the water already on the first day of the competition, had two more qualifying races each today. After swimming a total of 4 races, athletes in these classes are divided into gold, silver and bronze fleets according to their results.

Viktorija Andrulytė, representing Lithuania in the ILCA 6 class of yachts, after 4 races, takes the 50th position among 117 participants, which means that the athlete entered the golden fleet (the first half of all participants according to the results of the qualifying races) and will be able to continue the fight for higher positions.

Martis Pajarskas, who was in the 38th position on the first day in the ILCA 7 yacht class, landed in the 79th position among 184 participants during the second day of racing and will continue the competition in the silver fleet. Radvilas Janulionis, who represents Lithuania in the ILCA 7 class of yachts, is in 178th position after the qualifying race and will continue to compete in the bronze fleet.

The Trofeo Princesa Sofia Mallorca regatta takes place from April 1-6 on the island of Mallorca, Spain.
