Contrary to the unfriendly weather forecast, there was sun and an up to 4 bft wind on Lake Thoune yesterday, and all classes completed three races. Norbert Stadler SGYC and his team lead in the Dragons clearly with three race wins ahead of Alex Ruppli YCS and Garlef Baum TYC. Three bullets also for Oskar Koch YCL in the H-Boats. As always, the dominators of the Tempests are Cornelia and Ruedi Christen.
All ranking lists.
