Rund Um Bodensee - Boats about to arrive ...
The over 300 yachts participating in the 'Rund-Um-Bodensee', the annual Roundtrip Regatta on Lake Constance, started the race in a very light breeze, but during the evening, the wind was increasing to almost 5 bft by midnight. The upcoming rain made the night ride rather uncomfortable. The line honors went to the M2-catamaran 'Sonnen-König' of Stefan Stähli SUI who crossed the finish line as first on 2 hrs 59 min, closely followed by 'Black Jack' with Ralph Schatz GER. The first monohull 'Wild Lady' arrived at 4 hrs 09 min in Lindau. The live-ticker reports continuously on the further arrivals following quickly one after the other in a well established breeze now.
