Practical Flying Dutchman World Championship 2005
Lake Balaton, Balatonföldvár, Hungary

It was a slow start for the competitors on day two of the Practical Flying Dutchman World Championship on Lake Balaton in Balatonföldvár, Hungary with light winds delaying the first race. The wind filled in the afternoon however, and the local sailors prospered with a bullet lifting Hungarians Gábor GÁBORJÁNI SZ. and András PFENINGBERGER to third and seventh place good enough for Szabolcs MAJTHÉNYI and András DOMOKOS (HUN) to take the top spot.
The first race of the day eventually had to be abandoned in weak southwesterly winds. By the afternoon though a stable two beaufort northeasterly arrived and one more race was sailed.

GÁBORJÁNI SZ. and PFENINGBERGER led from start to finish after choosing a first leg tack near to a small thunderstorm on the northern side of Lake Balaton. A major tactical battle developed between overnight leaders Jörgen and Jacob BOYSEN-MOELLER (DEN) and reigning champions MAJTHÉNYI and DOMOKOS. The Hungarians won out, finishing five places above the Danes to take over the Championship lead. With both these teams finishing outside of the top places GÁBORJÁNI SZ. and PFENINGBERGER have now caught up with the leaders to make it a three-way battle at the top.
