Tuesday Racing at Balaton

Event News

Yes, some rain came and then wind! We think that a first race (R2 abandoned from yesterday) has finished and second started. We also hear mention of Oscar, capsizes and even Victor (this allows coaches inside the exclusion area to assist boats if requested). Balaton is not deep - so the safety of the mast is a consideration, as well as the crew! We think it will be sometime before we have any hard data or facts for you - this is just to whet the appetite - when we have, of course we will pass it on.
