Shifty winds but big moments

The final day of the qualifying series proved to be a difficult day for all – the competitors, the race committee but also coaches and parents. Despite the fabulous weather the wind shifty and the southerly breeze did not develop as promised by the weather men. It took the whole day to get the races in but everyone left the centre in the evening tired but satisfied.

Victor Silen from Finland who scored two bullets on the final qualifying day will lead the boys fleet into the final series where another 5 races are scheduled. Only two points behind him is the Austrian rooky Marino Müller waiting for his chance while Pontus Dahl from Sweden is just one point behind as third.  But it seems to be a very interesting final series as the first six boats are only 5 points apart while the two local heros – Calvin Claus and Lorenzo Faihs – are waiting for their chances to get up in the results.

The girls fleet is racing on series and now after more than 50% of races done, there is a Danish leader – Anne Mette Laugesen – with the Russian girl Anastasia Godovalnikova and Hanna Johannson from Sweden as second and third.  Behind them there is a chase group tied with 27 points which includes Cajsa Swensdotta, the Estonian girl Kätlin Tammiste and the best Austrian girl Valentina Faihs.  Anna Luschan who showed her outstanding talent with her victory in race 2 lacked consistency on day 2 and is on place 7.
