CLOSE CALL TO VICTORY AT CSP CHAM IN SWITZERLAND
An exceptionally clost leaderboard, saw the final top three just separated by 1 point.
Hosted at Segel Club Cham on Lake Zugersee, situated south of Zurich, eighteen Swiss teams contested the 6 race series, which were held in blustery condidtions over 20-21 May 2017.
Solene Mariani/Maude Schmid went into the final race on 12 points, with room in hand over the chasing teams of Nick Zeltner/Til Seger and Florian Geissbuhler/Livio Erni. These leading three teams had been jostling for the top spots throughout the race, barely letting any of the other teams take a sniff at the front of the fleet.
Mariani/Schmid played it safe in the final race 6, sailing a steady race to finish 9th, a result which became their discard, to win the series. Tiebreak for Zeltner/Seger and Geissbuhler/Erni, with their earlier race wins breaking it in in favour of Zeltner/Seger.
