This time Nick and Mario moved ahead with Nick taking the bullet and Mario second. Tim Garvin GBR rounded out the top 3.  With close racing throughout the fleet and some classic Lake Garda down wind rides  everyone returned to shore to share their stories from the day over a beer and a plate of pasta at the club.

The town of Travemunde pulled out all the stops with fireworks, laser light shows, beach bars, and of course the compulsory sausage and beer stalls that come with such a prestigious German regatta.  The weather was a mixed bag of flat calm, 30deg sunshine, to 40kt squalls with electrical storms.
