Today two more races are scheduled and after these the fleet will be spilt in gold and silver fleet. Here are the complete results after 4 races. And here are impressions from the racecourse MARC GER172
After a extremely well organized measurement of 116 boats and a great opening ceremony and party on Sunday evening. Races started on Monday with one race in the morning in light and shifty wind. The second race in the late afternoon had to be canceled when the first fleet finished the first round and the second fleet still waited for their start due to dying wind. Today weather is colder and a nice 3-5 bft. wind is promising good sailing for the up to 3 races. Here are the results after the first race.
