- Some images from the Exploder Team here, Jacek Noetzel 4th overall. And although still much to come I'm really happy for them as they are always trying to offer great value on their boats. I told you I liked that Exploder!

Checking the results above, lots of BFD in the first race inllcuding Baier, Calavia & Calabria.  Heemskerk is speeding downwind as reported by Arno, coming from the back in the first to score a 3rd and winning the second race over Brewin that is currently leading by one point.



2012 Euro Champ Andrew Landenberger on a good initial third overall. Another excellent start for Jacek Noetzel , Brayshaw and Keller. A pitty the As have only 2 races scheduled per day at major events, as today they had some good breeze with 10-12 knots. The BFD has affected the overall score table, but the many favorites including the top 3 are leading the pack. 


Race 1:
1- AUS 4 Steve Brewin
2- AUS 25 Stephen Brayshaw
3- NED 007 Mischa Heemskerk

Race 2:
1- NED 007 Mischa Heemskerk
