Eurocup 2015 @ Lake Garda, Fraglia Vela Riva - Day 2

23 June 2015



It was all change for day 2, the fleet left the shore in the classic drifter before the expected breeze. The wind did however take a while to kick in and when it did was slightly across the lake and actually had shifts in it. After a disastrous day one without a finish team Hall took the lead up the first beat in the first race of the day. Despite a strong challenge from team Wedge held on the the lead to the finish.

The wind freshened for race 2 and team Fulcher hit the right hand side hard coming out 100m ahead of the fleet. It looked like he was untouchable but a cruel shift caused by the impending storm left them stranded to watch team Nicholson, Hall and Crispin sail out in front of them and down the the finish.

The fleet were set in straight after the race as the storm increased traveling down the west valley with some intensity.

After the competitors had dried all were treated to drinks courtesy of Rondar Raceboats.
