The great surprise of the day came from the team of Marc Baier (18yrs) and Martin Rusterholz, Swiss Champions who scored two well deserved second place finishes ahead of Team Gaebler. Roland and Nahid scored a 4th and 3rd place which leaves them holding onto 2nd place overall by one point. The other Swiss team distanced themselves to fight for 4th place. Heiko Söhle and Thomas Noll, the local heroes came 3rd and 4th in todays races.

Due to strong winds and a heavy 3m swell after two races the race committee decided to call it a day.
It’s still the Gaeblers who have a firm grip on the mixed crown followed by Maurer and then Jentsch.

The forecast for tomorrow shows lighter winds approaching.
Tonights highlight is the invitation onto the old ship Passat for dinner."
