German Musto Skiffs successful at Italian Euro-Cup
This year’s Italian Euro-Cup September 10-12 enjoyed excellent sailing conditions. Eight German participants joined racing at Dongo, Lake Comer, to compete with sailors from Switzerland, Croatia and, of course, Italy. The fleet counted 20 boats, including the German World and European Champions Andi Lachenschmid and Frithjof Schwerdt.
Lake Comer was at its best during all three days of racing. The racing officials started each day at 1pm, and every day the wind appeared right on the minute. It increased each day to about 15-18kn. Saturday was limited to 2 races due to a heavy thunderstorm, but Sunday and Monday saw 7 races each.
Racing was very tight, with lots of changes in the first places. In the end, Frithjof took the win, followed by Roger Oswald and Alexander Greil from Switzerland. Further results of the German participants: 4. Torsten Bendig, 6. Andi Lachenschmid, 7. Bernd Jahn, 10. Thomas Kübler, 15. Philip Stangelmaier, 16. Martin Sattelkau und 19. Gert Hanker.
