Good performances in Sunday’s races whet the appetite of both the fans and the sailors themselves for a good result in the Olympic Regatta. But during Monday’s races, Klepacka fared much worse. In three starts it was in the sixteenth place twice and the ninth time. Thus, our representative ranked ninth in the general classification.
The 35-year-old sailor is already losing significantly in the places where the medal was awarded. Up to 30 points divide the Polish actor into the first two places: Charlene Bacon (France) and Emma Wilson (Great Britain) and 28 points for the third Chinese girl Yunxi Lu.
Hardware issues turned out to be the reason for the Klepacka failure on Monday. – Today my wind conditions were on the water, but after good starts I sailed slower than my opponents. After we returned to the beach, we noticed cracks in the fin of the surfboard. Tomorrow the judges will decide whether I can replace the part of the broken board – assures Klepacka.
On Tuesday, the sailors competing in the RS:X class will rest. Trainees will return to the Olympic Tours on Wednesday. There are still six elimination races to be played and a race for the double-goal medal for the top ten.
