Friday training with the classics present and the evening meal “minestrone” offered by our friend “Obelix” and is wife

Saturday at 1 pm we had the firt kick off for 4 heats in held 8/9 knots.
Sunday 10h30 am we leave for 5 heats in a wind oscillating from 4 to 7 knots and 23°under a bright sun

Finally and excellent week-end that end with a podium of 3 GGM (63,68,68)on non flying boat

Attached are the pictures and results of our Belgian championship. 2018
Belgian Champion: Muyzers Phillipe BEL54
2nd: Casanova André ,France
3rd: Estienne Maurice ,France .

We had 4 flying boats, but we made no distinction yet because our fleet is a classic majority

21 Competitors present,  (10 from Belgium, 9 French,1 German et 1Dutch ) with an average wind that tested the patience of the A-Class sailors.

The atmosphere in the parking lot was great and dinner was very much appreciated.
As usual the welcome made the difference along the conditions of a very technical lake.
Next year the championship will be held at the sea like every two years".
