2014 Nordic Youth Sailing Championship One redress for OCS was given due to a wrong recorded sail number.
There was very little wind throughout the whole regatta. Before the last day of racing, some classes did not have any races, others just a couple. On the last day, the schedule was changed so the first warning signal was planned to 0600 AM. The RC did a good job getting in rasces when the wind allowed it on the last day.
