Frank Suchanek Wins All Three Races On Day Three
No ALT tag specified

Contender European Championships

Frank Suchanek once again demonstrated his superiour lightwind speed by winning all three races by considerable margins.
Ian Renilson continued to sail consistently by scoring two seconds and a fourth making him the current overall leader before the last two scheduled races tomorrow.

After a foggy/ rainy morning and a postponement the fleet was called out at 11:00. The wind was a southerly (onshore) force 1-2, the tide was still running out which led to two general recalls. After the blackflagged start Suchanek went for the right side and constantly build a lead by simply being faster than everybody else on all points of sailing. The main game was running in the group behind him, with Ian Renilson finishing second, Neil Rosie(GBR/SCO) third. The next two races Frank Suchanek did exactly the same thing again and pulled out a big lead in each race. In the second race Ian Renilson again made it to the second followed by Soeren Andreasen (DEN) and Giovanni Bonzio (ITA). in the third race of the day Christian Brandt continued to put together a very good series by finishing second followed by top Italian Giovanni Bonzio.

After the seven races done so far Ian Renilson is leading discarding nothing worse than a sixth place, Christian Brandt (GER) second and Giovanni Bonzio (ITA) third. If two races are sailed tomorrow Frank Suchanek could discard both his bad results and make use of his four race wins so far. The chase will be on tomorrow, for sure.
