Final Report From 2016 DN Gold Cup
AWESOME day of sailing here- big breeze and fast ice saw wild sailing and several masts bite the dust-
I broke my CSI all-carbon prototype and while this was a bummer it left me on the starboard layline as the fleet did two more laps- Best seat in the house as forty-plus boats roared by. Silver linings….
Ron Sherry was top US finisher in 5th (with one bullet to his credit). In fourth was Lukasz Zakrzewski, third went to Vaiko Vooremaa. Michal Burczynski was an early leader but in the end a consistent performance by Karol Jablonski saw him take his tenth GC. Not bad!
Great dinner, European Champs begin tomorrow. Should be interesting!
The above picture is the starting area- one fleet on the line, one in the pit, and one on the course out of the photo. Not bad!
