17 Mothies from 6 countries: Austria, Croatia, Greece, Germany, Italy & Slovenia gathered in the JK Pirat for the first act of the Moth Eurocup 2016.
Southern wind carried rain and grey clouds to set a scene on Friday. Race committee managed to finished all 4 races despite the marginal conditions, with some lowriding around the windward mark (for some of us…) We saw some damage in the boatpark after racing, some we were able to fix by a sailmaker, carbon problems will need a touch of a professional.
Saturday was more of a lay day. The wind did not stabilize due to many thunderstorms and showers in the backland. Sport of the day was a fish barbecue with the catch of the day of a local fisherman not forgetting the cevapcici, off course! In the late hours some went to push the luck in the casino and the others were sparing it for Sunday with a strong Bora forecasted.
And the Sunday really delivered! The Bora was predicted to weaken during the day, but it just kept blowing harder! Races were sailed in 20-25kt measured on the starting boat. We did 3 more races and finished the event with 7 races sailed!
Stefano Rizzi took the gold, folowed by Carlo De Paoli and Marco Lanulfi.
I am sure we all still wear a smile on our face working trough our ordinary jobs on Monday. Well mine is the biggest! Thank you for coming dear friends, see you on Act 2 in Austria! (written by Luka Tomori)
