5.5 Metre Herbstpreis on Lake Thun - Day 2

 
In taking the only race win, Marie-Françoise XIX, SUI 228 also takes the overall lead with just one day left

Saturday was almost a carbon copy of Friday at the Herbstpreis on Lake Thun in Switzerland, with the capricious wind only allowing one more very light wind race before disappearing back into the Alps.

Just after midday a light easterly developed and the fleet was released for a 14.00 start in 4-5 knots.

Marie-Françoise XIX of Jürg Menzi, Dino Fumasoli and Christof Wilke made the best of the first upwind to round ahead of Caracole, SUI 214 of Bernard Haissly, Daniel Stampfli and Nicolas Berthoud

With in third place Shaolin, SUI 226 of Andreas Kindlimann, Martin Huber and Jürgen Eiermann.

Marie-Françoise XIX extended and led at every mark to take the win with Caracole holding off New Moon, BAH 21 of Christoph Burger, Renato Marazzi and Peter Vlasov to take second.

Then the wind dropped, the died and the lake became a mirror.
