Flying Dutchman Bulletin I S S U E

1 7 1


Time to say goodbye ... E D I T O R I A L With this FD Bulletin I would like to say goodbye as VP Communications. Almost 9 years of promotion work for the Flying Dutchman Class, 3 years of which were for the German Class Association, are behind me and I would like to take the opportunity to thank some enthusiastic FD sailors with whom I have worked very closely and creatively during this time. First of all Caro Rudorff, with whom I was able to give the whole communication of the German and later also the International Flying Dutchamn class a new face. The National Secretaries and members of National Classes, without whose support and content there would have been no content for the Bulletin or the digital channels: Philipp Zingerle, Manfred Panuschka, Nadan Kosanovic, Bosko Celic, Karsten Keil, Sami Leitl, Enrique Egea, Tomasz Kledzik, Petr Storch, Boris and Andrey Novoderenzhik, Ian and Jane McCrossin, Gerhard Panuschka, Eric Deleu, Luigi Macci, Dave Hislop, David Gibb, Vycheslav Chybarov, Carlo Brugman. My colleagues on the General Committee for a trusting and inspiring collaboration, especially John Best, Ed Cox, Jan Lechler, Zsofia Csanda, Rinaldo Rinaldi and Paul Hemker. And last but not least, my Subcommittee Communications, who will also be leaving office at the end of 2019: Tim Wechsler and Bene Nagel. Together, in the past 3 1/2 years we have put the complete digital communication of the IFDCO on a new footing. This would not have been possible without your knowledge and commitment. Thanks, guys! I wish the new President Peter van Koppen and his team good luck. Now enjoy reading this bulletin with plenty of IFDCO information and many reports from various international regattas including the outstanding European Championship at Lake Balaton, Hungary. See you again on the water! Marc Strittmatter

President´s Letter P E T E R

V A N

K O P P E N

Dear FD sailors! Presidents letter part 1 As your new President I write to you my first Presidents letter! After a hopefully nice and beautiful Christmas time we find ourseleves in the New Year 2020. As in the wintertime there is not much sailing on the northern hemisphere we load up for the upcoming year whilst on the southern hemisphere you are in the middle of the season. Looking back at 2019 we had another great season with a good number of regattas and participation. We had two really big highlights this year. Of course the Worlds in Nelson New Zealand with 41 competitors at the start in Nelson. Looking at the photos and listening to the stories there was great sailing at an unblievable beautiful location. And those who made the effort travelling so far got fully rewarded.

Furthermore Marc Strittmatter decided to step down as the VP Communications at the end of the year 2019. On behalf of everybody in the FD-Class we have to express great appreciation for all he has done for the Class. He spent an incredible amount of time and effort over all these years with all his heart and persuasion. Thank you very much Marc!

As for the second highlight: we had the Euopeans on Hungary on Lake Balaton. The organisation was great again. The Hungarians really know how to do this. A great thanks to Szabolcs and Zsofia and of course all others on the organizing team. Also compliments for the excellent media-coverage.

Presidents letter Part 2

We hoped for a slightly higher number of competitors but wind and weather conditions made up for this. We were spoiled by social events every day. The Spartacus Sailing Club is such a good location for an event like this. The atmosphere between the sailors was great and it was very good to see so many Russians and Ukrainians. All this gives me the impression that we are still a great International Class.

So we need a new candidate for this position soon. We invite anybody who can and wants do do the job. Please let us know! At he AGCM in Hungary Alberto is installed as the Trophy officer and will take care of all issues regarding the trophies we have in the class. He will also take care of the history of the class.

After a difficult situation we had within the class about the Presidents election procedure I would like to point out to you a few comments to this subject. Above all things we all love to sail the Flying Dutchman and that is mostly what the class is all about. But in order to enjoy the sailing we need an organization taking care of all the necessary business. Most of the sailors are not aware (and that is totally all right) how much time and effort is involved to arrange all this. So therefore we have the Committee with all of its members.

On the Commitee side several changes took place:

All these members are volunteers doing their jobs the best way they can. As the FD-class is not a big time company with a lot of money we can not afford to pay all kind of professionals. But of course every committe members has his or her job, family and other obligations. If we would not have these volunteers who spent up to sometimes hundreds of hours doing work for the FD the class just would not exist.

As I became President I can no longer execute the task of Treasurer. I’m very happy that Roman Houdek is willing to do the job. As for now he will be the interim Tresurer. We will follow the necessary nomination procedure.

In order to run the class rules and byelaws were written a long time ago and rewritten later. As for the election produre: in the past only the Committee itself could nominate a new Com-

So therefore we look forward to the next Worlds in Altea Spain. The Spanish that were in Hungary showed a lot of enthousiasm to organize this event. So surely we will have a great Championship there.

mittee member. Nobody outside the Committee had anything to say about it. The sailors were not involved. As time moves on we are all more used to be able to give our vote or opinion about things. When Tony Lyall was installed as President in 2015 in Sydney for the first time the sailors could give their vote. Almost all sailors present at the Worlds were assembled on a grassfield and so the voting was done. Only all the sailors not being present at the Worlds could not participate in the voting. Shortly before the latest Presidents election we decided to get as many sailors involved in the election with all of our best intentions. A lot of the sailors were disappointed by the rules defined in the byelaws that we had to apply. Some byelaws will be adapted to make things even more clear. There is also a big responsability with the National Secrataries. We decided to comminicate more and better about these things with them. Just as they also have to

communicate better with the Committee. One last remark: Democracy is a good thing but it also has its limits. We live in the time of the modern media. It is very easy to give your opinion sitting behind a screen. You can even spread it around to the whole world. Sometimes it can be extremely dangerous especially if wrong information is spread around. So I want to ask to all of you: whenever you have a problem about the class direct yourself to one of the Committee members or your National Secretary instead of getting all FD-members involved straight away. Eventually there is an easy explanation to your problem. It is always easy to critisize, so If you belive you can do a better job please join the committee and come and help us. Several times in the past we have asked people for this. Hardly ever we found anybody who then wanted to do a committee job for real. President IFDCO Peter van Koppen

(including any item from World Sailing) Meike Greten mentions following points: • We need to update the Byelaws in terms of the wording “ISAF” vs. “World Sailing”. • Byelaws will be reworked in regard of the voting process by Ed Cox, Dutch Law, World Sailing proofed • Voting Process will be defined • Plan to build up a member database as our Byelaws are requiring


• World Sailing • Is working a lot on their own structure • Wants to concentrate on Olympic classes The report is agreed. TOP 7 Treasurers Report a) Accounts for 2018 Peter van Koppen hands out and presents the financial report in a detailed way. Peter highlights the following points: • Reserve account: around 50’ (reserve for WC) • Working account: around 30’ • Build up reserve again The report is agreed. b) Update on the Finances for 2019 to date The budget 2019 was presented by Peter van Koppen. There are no special expenses in 2019 expected; except higher expenses for WC and EC because there are both events in 2019. Up to now: 548 members, 207 sailbuttons sold Decision: The membership fee won’t be raised up this year. The report is agreed. c) Budget for 2020 The budget for 2020 will be similar to 2019. No special expenses are expected; no container grants will be given in 2020. Decision: 75.000 € should be enough as a reserve in total (50’ for WC, 25’ for other things). The amount above this border should be invested in young sailors and communication in development countries. The report is agreed. TOP 8 Officers Report VP Championships Rinaldo Rinaldo presents the results of the work of VP Championships: • WC 2020: Altea, ESP; will be signed shortly; preparations are going on • To do: fix the rule for split fleet racing in the championship rules • Three bids for WC 2021 (Campione ITA, Torbole ITA, Gnydia POL) with the new bid-book (just Campione delivered a fully filled up bid-book with a great social program). All bids were presented to the fleet at the competitors hearing. • Euro Cup results have to be better prepared as Excel file

Decision: WC 2021 will be in Campione, ITA. WC 2022 will be in Gnydia, POL. The reason is that AUS/NZL/USA promised to participate in 2021 in Italy. Poland is willing and can prepare a good Worlds for 2022. 2023 should be USA, any ideas are welcome. VP Communications Marc presents the work of him and his subcommittee with Tim and Benedikt. • Aim: show FD sailing on as many channels as possible to get sponsors for the class (give a sponsor a media presentation) and to get younger sailors on board • Launched a new youtube-channel IFDCO to address young people (with videos from Italy, Spain, Germany etc.) and to collect great material at one channel • Launched an Instagram account to address younger sailors; aim 3.000; followers; currently > 300 – since a few weeks online • Budget of 1000 € from last year was invested to support two championship video production (GER and AUT) • GER 90 has done a video on their own which has about 26.000 clicks on youtube • One more bulletin will be produced in 2019 Decision: 1.000 Euro for youth-training from this year will be postponed to next year as a Pre-Worlds training 2020. Decision: 1.000 Euro media budget will be available again in 2020. Marc is retiring at the end of the year. We thank Marc for his tireless dedication and commitment to IFDCO. He has moved and achieved a lot for the class in the years of his tenure. We will miss his support and wish him all the best for the new time gained and continue to enjoy the FD sailing. VP Technical Respectfully submitted by Paul Hemker, VP Technical, by e-mail before the meeting In the last several years we have had very few technical items that have caused problems. World Sailing (WS) has revised the process of making Rule changes so they can be handled very promptly by submitting the proposed changes to WS and they review the revisions and advise whether the changes meet their requirements. In general we have only had one

10 | AGM Minutes

or two submissions that were reviewed and the only one that had any import was related to another submission that several members had objected to. We asked that the old rule be reinstated and WS agreed. In other words it is much easier to update rules without the rush for all classes to submit changes one time a year. The three current items that are under discussion within the class are gybing centerboards, the new Centerboard/Rudder jig and a possible change in the method of measuring the mainsail. We will continue to review the gybing centerboard issue but have advised the person who has requested that gybing centerboards be banned that it will be difficult to implement his proposed change in addition to the fact that the additional cost for gybing boards does not seem excessive. The fact that gybing boards have been used successfully for many years by a number of sailors indicates that breakage may not be the major consideration that has been given as a reason for banning them. The new centerboard/rudder jig has been used for the 2019 Worlds and 2019 European Championships. It was produced using cad files and has been compared carefully with old and new mylars (the gold standard for their shapes) and the new jig is as accurate as it seems possible to produce. A number of foils are somewhat under the size limitations specified in the rules but have previously measured in at championships. In the opinion of the Technical Committee, foils will need to conform to the new jig for regattas after 2019. New foils that have been measured with the new jig measure just fine. One sailmaker has

requested that we consider making changes in the method of measuring the mainsail. In discussion with other sailmakers, they agree that it might be easier to use the proposed method but they do not consider the current method as being hard to work with. We will continue to see if changing would make Regatta Inspection more accurate and faster. At the moment there is a distinct need to expand the list of International Measurers and also a need to encourage those interested in the technical aspects of the FD to volunteer for the Technical Committee. Proposal from Dirk Bogumil to forbit the jibbing centerboard. The proposal won’t be agreed. VP Development Svend was out of communication the last months/years. There was no report and no action received. Decision: The GC will doublecheck IFDCO Foundation Rules regarding a resignation ofcommittee members. Decision: Add a paragraph that the meeting committee can finish a term of acommittee member. Additional information from other committee members: • An E-Mail from Chile was received, they are asking for sails and telling that the are preparing some old FDs. • Question from RUS: aksing for masts (for old boats, Alu or wooden)


Peter is taking care of it: Make it public! “Clean your garage and bring masts and sails”

TOP 9 Commodore Reports Australia & New Zealand • – Germany • IFDCO received member-list of Germany; good increase in the last years (also because of the Worlds 2016), now a little drop • Big drive for younger sailors • One Class Boat will be replaced by a quite new boat including a double-trailer Italy • See Report below by Alberto Barenghi Netherlands • Older Crews resigned, younger crews are coming but staying in the • Netherlands, training a lot • Youngest FD sailor with 14 years J USA • US has a new president • Offers an FD as a charter boat • Conflicts with international regattas GBR by Tony Lyall Number of active boats is now very small only 6/7 are sailing and only 3 of those are likely top travel to any European or World events. • Despite this out membership numbers are

• • •

still high at around 20 those the majority of those are old members who no longer sail the FD. There were no FD racing in the UK in either 2018 or 2019. There are only 8 or 9 boats that are fit to race and all but two of those are over 20 years old. Lookin forward to 2020 and beyond I fear there will be a slow decline in membership numbers.

Report from Italy by Alberto Barenghi The Italian Flying Dutchman Class in 2019 was confirmed as one of the numerous fleets with 69 members and about 30 boats participating in the various regional, national and international regattas. The contribution in geographical terms on the Italian territory is expressed mainly by 3 areas of the Italian Sailing Federations: Lazio, Marche and Tuscany. The work of the „FD Storici“ (Historical Flying Dutchman) group continues with good results for the recovery of the old boats present in the national territory. In this year our class has acquired a Promo Boat for young crews; we have also worked to encourage a rejuvenation process through the involvement of young sailors to compose new crews. In the context of organizing the Class events in Italy, the goal we tried to achieve was to propose regattas that could also attract foreign crews, providing both the structures of the clubs and other facilities that allowed foreign sailors to minimize travel and consequent costs moreover the Italian Class is go-

ing on to organize further activities to join, as training or clinic sessions, Italian and foreign teams. The results obtained are good and we hope to improve the offer available to anyone with the pleasure of sailing in our Country by a Flying Dutchman dinghy. Regarding the appointment of the new IFDCO President we are proud that one of our members is candidate for this position and the Italian Committee has made a commitment with a significant effort to reach the widest involvement of Italian FD Class members. The doubts and suggestions raised by several national Committees regarding the elective criteria, after the result has issued, make necessary and indispensable a better clarity of the method applied. Moreover, a revision of the elective criteria must guarantee a multinational representation necessary for the survival of the FD Class. One of the Italian Class goal is to promote an improvement of the communication systems between the sailors and the National and International Committees to involve each FD member in the Class life; moreover, a better communication system could improve the visibility of our Class to sponsors on social and media channels. Italian Class is ready to provide any ideas to improve this goal as soon as possible. Since now we are available to host international future events in suitable locations and with valid organizations as we demonstrated in 2017 by organizing FD Worlds in the beautiful Marina di Scarlino. We are looking forward to receiving a feedback from IFDCO Committee with the hope to work together for the future of FD Class. TOP 10 Boat Registration Report Zsofia Csanda stepped back per 30th September 2018 as IFDCO Boat Registrar. Zsofia has done an amazing job for the class. IFDCO thanks here for all the effort she was willing to serve to the class and each FD sailor. Tony Lyall is willing to do this job. Tony has successfully taken over the whole material by Zsofia. Boats 2019: around 26 boat owner changes Report by Tony Lyall Because of the circumstances & timing of the previous post holders resignation there was

no formal appointment of, or hand over to the new Boat Registrar. So we were in a bit of limbo for several months. That has now all been sorted out and we are fully up and running. You will have seen I’m sure the article in the most recent International Bulletin. I must stress that it’s important that those that are selling a boat pass on all the original documents to the new owner and that they in turn send those to me. Scanned, photocopied & photo shot copies are not acceptable as the quality of these are often very poor and the data is no longer readable. It would also help is they typed their personal details as I’ve had difficulty reading some of the handwriting. Personal numbers are still a problem mainly in Countries that don’t have National Class organizations as many sailors don’t understand the system & think they can just choose any number they want. It would be really helpful if I could have an up to date list of all National Secretaries and an e-mail address so I can contact them is I have any questions/issues. In closing I want to say Zsofia in behalf of all the members of IFDCO say a big thank you for all her hard work she’s done over the last 12 years, taking over from Cle was always going to be a hard act to follow, but she’s done a great job. Decision: A FD half model will be presented to Zsofia as a thank you at the price giving ceremony. TOP 11 Chief Measurers Report Tanja Heijnk presents her experience and work as chief measurer: • WC NZ: 42 boats, all good, including a self-made boat, very good measurement, not a lot of problems, weights were taken out of some boats • EC HUN: Clubs have good solutions for hanging the scale, still optimizing the procedure to get faster • Thorsten Gaubisch, GER, wants to become an international measurer in the next years • Ioannis Remoundos, GER/GRE, wants to become an international measurer • Alexander Antrecht and Dirk Bogumil are potentials for measurer • Big discussion in World Sailing measure-


ment. Want to get rid of the premeasurements, • only professional measurers. Not doable for FD class. • Preparation with Spain for measurement works fine. • IFDCO is planning to introduce a digital measurement certificate form Decision: Professional photos from prices for insurance, website, etc. needed; descriptions of the prices necessary. Alberto Barenghi will take care of those photos.

A reminder to all sailors that Centerboards and Rudders must meet the outline of the current foil template for 2020 Worlds at Altea. A number of foils that have been presented in the last few championships have been undersized. In most cases minor additions to tips can bring them into compliance. The new template has been carefully compared to old and new Mylar prints as well as to the digital files. Paul Hemker VP Technical

DAY 1 Danish lead after day 1, two Hungarian boats in podium position On the opening day of the 2019 Flying Dutchman Europeans the first 2 races have been conducted in mild, sunny but rather shifty conditions on Lake Balaton. The fleet was clear of the start only after several attempts in both races, the organizers had to use black flag at the start of the 1st race. From one hand this was thanked to the tricky, shifty wind conditions where one could easily find himself on the wrong side of the line seconds before the start, but some of the crews were probably testing the strictness and capabilities of the organizing comittee, whether they can manage a fleet of 67 boats from 17 different countries. Well, they did! After the black flagged start a total of 4 boats have been disqualified from race 1. It is the Bojsen-Möller brothers (actually cousins), who are leading the pack after 2 races harvesting a well deserved first and second place. The 13 times world champion Hungarian crew, Majthenyi & Domokos duo is currently on 2nd position with consecutive 3rd places. Current 3rd is the local Ziegler – Czeizel boat with an outstanding performance of 8th and 4th places. The “peloton” is not far behind with several German crews who are not new for the Balaton conditions. “We rounded the first top mark in 10th place in both races. The south-westerly – which is normally well known to us – has shifted 30 degrees at the worst moment, and although the organizers have reacted quick and modified the course, we had to fight hard to get back to the top of the fleet. We could gain positions mainly during downwind with good tactics and were able to catch a few more boats just before the finish line” – said Szabolcs Majthenyi The organizers are expecting a greater variety of wind conditions in the upcoming days so there is plenty of room to improve in the remaining 7 races.

DAY 3

Local Heros Jump Ahead on Day 3 After todays’ three races Szabolcs Majthenyi & András Domokos from Hungary have jumped to the top of the leader board on the Flying Dutchman European Championship. Tough conditions greated the fleet on the water today. The 20-25 knots northerly gusts have kept 7 crews on shore. Some were brave but unlucky as many capsized and a few dismasted mainly during race 1. After windless yesterday It was a complete adrenalin rush for those who managed to remain in the battle, the have sailed 3 complete races today. It was an excellent start of race 1 for the Hungarian top team and after rounding the top mark in 1st position, the managed to extend their lead with a great spinnaker run. Not all were determined enough to hoist the colourful downwind sails. Shaking of the chasing pack consisting of mainly German crews, they also had to face with technical difficulties in the 2nd upwind, but regardless they managed to pull in victory of the 1st race. Conditions were calming down for the start of race 2 but it also meant 20-30 degrees shifts of gusts which made this race a very tactical one. Nerves were in the right place for the Borowski brothers from Germany who lead through the whole race and holding a firm grip on victory till the end. Behind them the Bojsen-Möller cousins finished 2nd and there was some extreme tight battle for the 3rd place as only 5 inches have separated the Majthenyi & Domokos duo from the Burkert & Schwade crew on the finish line in favour of the Hungarians. The 13 times world champions were unstoppable in race 5, with almost perfect sailing they claimed easy victory upon the Borowski brothers and the Schiffer & Wenten duo from Germany. After a great day of sailing the Majthenyi & Domokos duo have stepped up on top the overall leader board, behind them are the Danish Bojsen-Möller cousins, and with their great performance today the Borowski brothers have made their way up to 3rd position. Further 4 races are planned in the remaining 2 days of the regatta.

DAY 4

Majthényi–Domokos Secure European Title on Penultimate Day The European Championship of the FD class continued with another three races today in Balatonföldvár. Overninght leaders Majthényi and Domokos executed their tactical task for race 6: stay close to the Bojsen-Möller boat, their current rivals for the title. The pair sticked together throughout the race, and after rounding the first mark in the twenties, they managed to finish 6th and 7th respectively. Their class showed especially in the downwind parts of the course. Hungarian Süli and Papp showed stellar form to lead the way around only to lose the race to the Borowski brothers in the final approach to the finish. With their second race win, the German duo is on fire, looks even stronger for a podium finish. The wind picked up and settled in race 7, the leading trio engaged in a tight battle. The Hungarians came out on top in the last downwind to take the race win, Schafers-Happich came second, the Boysen-Möllers 3rd and the Borowskis 4th. At 4 pm PRO Bence Fluck was determined to conduct the third race of the day as conditions were near perfect. In the building breeze the unstoppable Hungarians took advantage of their good speed and stamina to take victory ahead of Markhoff-Stöckmann and Schafers-Happich from Germany. HUN 70 pulled out a magic last mark rounding to jump in the lead from 3rd position. After 8 races the second discard came into play. Regardless of tomorrow’s last race, Szabolcs Majthényi and András Domokos secured their sixth European Championship gold medal – beside the 13 World titles. They are in the FD elite for 25 years now, but this one is special – it is the first major title they won on home waters. The battle is on for the podium positions tomorrow, one last race will decide the silver and bonze medals.

DAY 5

The 2019 FD European Championship Concludes with Hungarian Victory The 2019 FD European Championship Concludes with Hungarian Victory September 20, 2019 Local favourites Szabolcs Majthényi and András Domokos have already won the championship title yesterday. There was one more challenge for them however, to win the golden FD model awarded the best team without a discard. With their 4th place finish in race 9, mission completed. They have been sailing in sensational form all week with four race wins and consistent top 3 scores to count. The final race of the series got away in light and shifty Easterly wind that usually dies around midday. PRO Bence Fluck did not want any delay, the race got started under black flag. The Czech team of Hruby-Houdek managed to read the shifts best, they went on winning the race to climb up 5th overall. Yesterday’s podium positions remained unchanged – Jörn and Bodo Borowski from Germany posted 10th place today, but it was enough for them to win silver medal. The Boysen-Möllers from Denmark settled for bronze with a 6th place finish. t was a succesful event with all the scheduled races completed. The organisers did a great job on and off the water with the help of the beautiful early autumn Balaton weather. The two consecutive breezy days with 3 races each were pretty demanding and memorable for many of us. Spartacus Sailing Club has an ongoing passion of hosting major international events for several years. As the Finn Gold Cup in 2017 or the Laser Radial Youth Euro in 2018, this year’s FD Europeans is again made possible by our fantastic club volunteers and partners, the Ministry of Human Capacities and the Hungarian Yachting Association. See You next time! Spartacus Sailing Club

Yacht Club, and take advantage of the occasion to stroll round the picturesque town of Altea which, with its white-washed houses lining the hillside and uniquely welcoming atmosphere, is one of the last remaining jewels of the Spanish Mediterranean. A core part of Altea Yacht Club's mission is to promote and support sailing and watersports. The sailing school is the main way in which the Club works to promote a love for sailing in both children and adults, while all of the board members in charge of dinghy sailing, yachting, rowing, fishing, diving, canoeing and swimming work hard to provide the facilities and services needed to encourage members and visitors take up a water sport, or improve their skills. The Club organises high-level sports competitions throughout the year which attract competitors from all over Spain, including classic sailing events such as the two handed 200 hundred miles regatta that began in 1987, and the Altea Bay Open which has been held for over 20 years.

EuroCup Karwendel Cup Achensee 1 6 . – 1 8 . 0 8 . 2 0 1 9 The last rain showers have just subsided on Friday morning when the last of the 156 participants hurry to the registration on 78 boats from 7 nations. Finely neatly lined up are 39 Flying Dutchman and 39 Korsare standing on the meadow of the SC TWV Achensee, the sailors hope for an exciting, windy weekend. Record breaking registration figures remind us of the 80s and once again it shows what can be achieved with a clever choice of dates and an attractive supporting programme on a wind-proof, dreamlike alpine lake: In both boat classes, the Karwendelcup has been one of the largest international regattas for years and this year in Austria - with the exception of the optimists - it should be ex aequo the class regatta with the most participants. Punctually at 12 o'clock, race director Georg Wietzorrek sent all 78 boats onto the water in sunshine and with the south wind fading, and kept them for 4 races with north wind

with 3 to 4 Bft until the evening on the water. Exciting races developed, in which one could not allow oneself even the smallest mistake. Consistency was in demand. Even though the first day had been very exhausting, the decision to return to the harbour at sunset was the right one. On Saturday neither south nor north wind wanted to start, the lake lay mirror-smooth between Karwendel and Rofangebirge! All the more reason for dancing at the boathouse party in the evening. And one or the other cocktail helped to wash down the disappointment about the missing wind. Only few believed after the calm of Saturday that Sunday would bring the classical thermal


winds again. But punctually at 11 o'clock the south wind set in. Supported by the light hairdryer it blown constantly, and thus further 3 races with 2 to 3 Bft and cloudless sky could be sailed. Constant top places in all races brought two teams each from Germany the victory: Felix Albert and Lukas Merz won almost as sovereign in the FD as Markus and Stefanie Klug, who had no other boat in front of them at the Korsar in any race. Veit Steiner and Michael Hofbauer from Union Yachtclub Mattsee took the Austrian Championship in the Korsar with twelfth place overall. The current Austrian champions Jakob Holzinger (UYCT) and Paul Srienz (PSV-Wien, sailing section) were the best Austrians in the FD (7th place). When the north wind started at the award ceremony, everyone promised to come again next year: Perfect timing, perfect setting, perfect organisation on the water and on land! SCTWV

This year there were fortunately almost 40 entries for the Lake Garda Marina Preis. Altogether 6 races could be sailed. Unfortunately we were not able to have a real strong wind race, because a start in the morning was not possible due to the parallel Euro of the 29er (with 210 participating boats). But nevertheless it was worth a trip like every year. This year the team GER 113 Kilian König/Johannes Brack won for the first time, followed by GER 30 Alexander Antrecht/Christian Kujan. Hans-Peter Schwarz and Roldand Kirst, who have already won the trophy countless times, finished in 3rd place. Congratulations! CARO GER 92

EuroCup 2019 winners: Jiri Hruby and Roman Houdek

92 crews participated in 2019 in EuroCup regattas in Spain, Holland, Germany, Austria and Italy. A really very good number, which would have been even better if not all races of the Czech Championship at the beginning of September had been cancelled due to lack of wind. A pity. With very good placings at the Kieler Woche (2nd place), the Karwendel Cup at the Achensee (3rd place) and the Marina Preis in Torbole (5th place) the EuroCup 2019 goes to Jiri Hruby and Roman Houdek. Congratulations! At the editorial deadline the EuroCup regattas 2020 were not yet confirmed by IFDCO. Presumably the EuroCup will be EuroFlying Cup Altea, Easter Egg Loosdrecht, Czech Championship, Campione Lake Garda, Kieler Woche, Achensee and for the first time also a regatta in Poland.

This year again, the big international FD regattas of the Alps have been rated together for the ThermikCup: Tegernsee in Germany, Achensee in Austria and Lake Garda in Italy. Even though the wind was unfortunately not as good as one would have hoped for in midsummer with the best weather at thermal wind lakes, the participation was extraordinarily good. Between 30 and 40 teams participated in all regattas. And this year for the first time the ThermikCup was not won by Hans-Peter Schwarz and Roland Kirst, but by GER 222 Felix Albert and Lukas Merz. They were able to secure the Cup already after the second regatta, as they won both the Tegernsee and the Achensee. Congratulations! Marc GER172
