Austro–Hungarian Dominance

Another three races were held today in Balatonföldvár at the F. W. Raiffeisen Cup in a fresh Bft 4–5 wind from S–SW. The regatta is a great chance for the young sailors from six countries to get familiar with the venue of the forthcoming European Championship in racing conditions.

All of the starts today went off under Black Flag which caused several disqualifications. Not for David LUCAN (YCBb), who jumped in front of the leaderboard with an impressive performance in the breeze. He is followed by the best Hungarians, SZILASI Fábián (Kereked VK), TENKE Áron (SVE) and WOLF Szabolcs (BS-Fűzfő VC). Behind them two Austrian sailors, Lorenz PICHLER (UYCAs) and Yannis SAJE (SC TWV Achensee) form the top six.

The regatta concludes tomorrow with two more races in similar conditions according to the forecast. See You then!
