It takes some wind to tango
We were supposed to have the International Swiss Championships in Arbon, Lake Constance, last Thu.-Sun. Due to the lack of wind we managed to sail two races in four days only. The two races we had were wind lotteries, especially the second one where a quarter of the fleet got a black flag and another quarter did not finish in time.
I got lucky draws sailing a 9th and a 6th which meant I ended up 10th overall of 109 participants from seven nations.
To have a proper Swiss Championship we would have needed four races. This in turn means that there either is no Swiss Championship this year or one of the two regattas left this year will be turned into three days Swiss Championship .
Coming up next is a regional regatta on Greifensee at the end of the month.
