Eurocup 2015 @ Lake Garda, Fraglia Vela Riva - Day 4

25 June 2015



Day 4 and three more races were held in glorious sunshine and a 15 -20 not breeze. The wind speed was a little more liking to much of the fleet and we saw the full fleet start the day. Team Nicholson lead the first race but a broken jib sheet meant an early pit stop allowing the Crispins to gain another first - a result that will really count at the end of the week. However with the jib sheet fixed Team

Nicholson went onto win the second race of the day followed by team Hall and team Richards. The points were getting closer and in the last race Team Fulcher took an early lead followed by team Hall. After a close battle Team Hall overtook and lead to the finish.

Going into the last day any one of the top three can now win the week and it is mathematically possible for Team Hall to make the podium once the three discards come in and they lose the last one of their DNS.

After racing the fleet retired to a local restaurant for a fun filled evening and a very amusing presentation by the class chairman Peter Kirkby with Fraser Elms taking much of the flack.
