2013 Act 5: Denmark / Horsens REVIEW

posted in: 2013 | 0

DSC_0107_denmarkSven Kloppenburg wins Eurocup Act 5 at Horsens Denmark.

After an impressive series he had to discard a second and a first leaving a clean row of six firsts. Adriano Petrino comes in second in front of Ole Frey.

Saturday saw 4 races in 12 – 16 kts shifty breeze from the south-west with some rain before and after the races. Sven did the best with 3 wins and a second place, followed by Adriano (1 first and 3 second places) and Ole (3 third and a 6th place).

Sunday started with a westerly wind > 20 kts having no effect to Svens perfomance securing his first place with 4 firsts. Lightweight Adriano struggled a bit in the heavy conditions of the first two races but Søren could use them to his advantage to change final places with Hans. Races 7 and 8 saw slightly lower winds and Adriano recovering his performance.

All in all it was a terrific event with great hospitality, big grassy rigging area, possibility to camp next to the boats or to use the club house for the night, shared breakfasts and suppers and a kind forthcoming race committee which deserves a lot more participants.
