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

83 boats from 15 nations began the Practical Flying Dutchman World Championship on Lake Balaton in Balatonföldvár, Hungary yesterday. Reigning World Champions Szabolcs MAJTHÉNYI and András DOMOKOS (HUN) got off to a good start on their home waters, but a bullet for Jörgen and Jacob BOYSEN-MOELLER (DEN) gives them the early lead.
Medium to light wind from the southwest provided the conditions for two tricky opening races in Hungary. In the shifty winds, a battle ensued between World title holders MAJTHÉNYI and DOMOKOS, and 2004 runners up the BOYSEN-MOELLER brothers.

The Danish pair got the best of the opening day with a bullet in the second race giving them the lead. Two second places for MAJTHÉNYI and DOMOKOS also put them on four points, with a gap already opening up to the rest of the fleet led by Australia's Norman RYDGE and Richard SCARR on eleven points.

Two more races are scheduled for today, tomorrow and Thursday with the Championship's final race set for Friday.
