ROOSTER 420 OPEN HUNGARIAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS GOES TO HANNA SOLTESZ/BALAZS MARTON
From 29 August-28 September 2018, the Rooster 420 Open Hungarian National Championships and Trophy was held at the Balatonfüred Club on Lake Balaton, featuring 21 teams from Hungary and the Czech Republic.
The National Championship kicked off well on the opening day, with a breeze of around 10 knots, decreasing to 7-8 as the day unfolded. Two races completed, albeit with a shortened course in race 2, and Hanna Soltesz/Balazs Marton scored 2,1 to take the opening day lead.
No racing on days 2 and 3 as the wind failed to show, returning on Saturday’s day 4. An easterly 10 knot breeze filled for the penultimate day, but it spun around with varying pressure and direction, so a tricky race track for the teams to master.
The final day again saw a no-show from the wind, so the overnight leaderboard remained, with the 2018 420 National Championship title going to Hanna Soltesz/Balazs Marton from their scorecard of 2,1,5,2, second to Peter Vida/Laszlo Fehervari and third to Marcell Mohacsi/Erik Juhasz.
Peter Vida/Laszlo Fehervari also won the U19 420 National Championship title.
