He won the German Nats in May ago and now after a "low" start on Friday with 5th and a 7th , he went dominating with 4 bullets and three 2nds in the last 8 races.
German countrymen Sebastian Moser and Mathias Dietz completed the podium. With Erwin Kerstens debuting at the Dutch Nats as first local in 4th place.

The Class continue to show excellent mix in the designs on the top spots with 5 dfferent platforms in the top 5. And also the great chance for +60 sailors like Piet Saarberg that dominate day 1 and Mathias Dietz that ended 3rd to keep sailing after your office days retirement. More on the Class later with an Arno Terra interview.
