Favourable winds awaited the fleet on Wednesday, as well. In fact, the wind was one or two beaufort stronger than on Tuesday.

The first race got away in NW wind, but in the second leg the wind turned toward South. The classes with few boats were very disciplined at the start, only one 420-er was early. Once again, only the umpteenth start of the OPs was successful, so many racers got a BFD instead of a race result.

For the second race the wind turned completely SW and a new course had to be set. So the fleet could attack the chocolate-boat for long: they received a lot of great sweets and fresheners. The wind got calmer so those who in the morning decided the wind was too strong for them could also venture out. The wind lasted also for the third race, but got stronger again in the meanwhile. The sky became clear and we could finish the sixth race in stunning sunshine.

After touching land the race winners received the sponsors’ presents and a Hungarian dinner awaited everyone. There were fewer protests than on the first day, even so there were racers who did not complete the course according to the rules. In the evening, the annual meeting of the Hungarian Optimist Association was held, amidst much interest.
