Malcesine Finn Cup 2005
Mascelsine, Italy

The ISAF Grade 2 2005 Malcesine Finn Cup in Lake Garda once again provided high level competition with a fleet of 55 boats from 8 countries.
All weather conditions were experienced over 3 days and 5 races sailed. From hot, sunny and windy to light races sailed in rain and fog, Lake Garda displayed its full array of conditions. To add to the thrill this regatta tried an innovating new scoring system developped by the Finn class with only penalty points and no drop. The experiment, supervised by IFA officials, was highly interesting, as it opened the debate between sailors, race committees, judges, sailing journalist and class officials.

The Finn Cup was convincingly won by Matthias MILLER from Germany. This young sailor is one of the plethora of new 'blood' regenerating the strong German Finn fleet. His consistent sailing secured him a comfortable lead over Rudolf LIDARIK (CZE) . In third place was another junior sailor Matthias BOHN (GER) from Warnemunde. The best placed Italian sailor was 19 year old Marko KOLIC in fifth position, who was awarded the perpetual Menoni Trophy. Other well placed juniors included Mark ANDREWS (GBR) in 7th position. The Scottish sailor turned 20 in Malcesine, and is waiting to go home to celebrate in style! The No Drop system cost some favourites dearly, such as Gasper VINCEC (SLO), Florian RAUDASCHL (AUT) and Wietze ZETZEMA (NED) who had to carry 55 points in their overall results.
