TORNADO SAILING - On day three of the European Tornado Championships, Roland and Nahid defended their 2nd place with 2 firsts and a 2nd place in conditions between 6 and 11 knots. The Greek duo hat trouble crossing the start line because of a speedboat crossing the line seconds into the first race. They had to veer away and restart again, rolling up the field from behind, ending 4th behind the The Czechs David and Adam, Martin and Marc.
The 2nd and 3rd races with a little more wind, downwind a flyer brought better results for Kostas and Dani nailing a 1st in the last race of the day. At 5pm the Trave Short Track races took place in front of 25,000 spectators!
The day began with strong rain showers and waiting for the competitors. By 10am it was clear that most probably we wouldn’t be sailing before 12, maybe not at all. At 11am Dani and Kostas decided to surprise us with an informal question and answer round, on tactics and any trouble shooting.
At 12am the waiting for racing was ended and 2014 had new European Champions. Dani & Kostas 1st, Nahid and Roland 2nd and Rusterholz and Baier 3rd. In Mixed, 1st place went to Nahid and Roland, 2nd to Maurer and Oldenburg and 3rd to Sarah and Jürgen Jentsch.
