Finally the wind arrived for the second day of the F5-10 at Pichlingersee Regatta. We started in breeze but after that it became stronger (we just used A rig, and wasn’t the boarders of it 😃), so the organizers could make 14 races. I think we had a great day.
For me it was awesome, I reached finally the first place of the F5-10. Previously I afraid that if the wind come I will struggle with the sail which is optimised for the new 0.8 waterline NAVIGA rule, but with I right set up everything went well and it was insanely fast. I should say that in bigger gusts it became slower, and the original sail would be better. My father finished finally 7th and Országh Tibor finally 9th in the F5-10.
Today we will have the first day of the F5-E. Much more wind predicted than yesterday, so we will have a lot of fun. Maybe we should use B or C rigs. I’m really excited what will happen. There are 44 competitors on the entry list, so it will be a strong competition with really good RC sailors.
