Star EC – Day Two report

There were three races in light but steady easterly wind on a typical warm summer day in front of the waters of Balatonföldvar. Early morning the weather was very unpromising, the water was like a mirror. As the temperature was rising, wind arrived from the Tihany straits and lasted through the whole day.

The races were trickier today, the south side was not so favoured than it was yestarday. Some of the boats close to shore even drew some mud with their keel.
There was no lack of excitement during the races, many mixed results were born, however the German pair of Merkelbach-Koy were able to produce consistent top scores. With two seconds, a fourth and a third place they lead the standings. Second overall are the Swedish Lofstedt-Sundman pair, while the Gereben brothers are currently third, pleasing their local supporters.

The Championship is now valid after four races have already been completed. In case of 5 or more races each competitorʼs worst score can be discarded which can shuffle the scorebord a little bit. Considering the weather forecast for tomorrow, PRO Béla Erdelyi can only hope for the thermical easterly again in this early hot summer.
