In contrast to the first day's sailing, race 2 in the Star European Spring Championship was started in a fantastic 12 knot northerly breeze on Lake Ballaton in Hungary.
It was, however, not to last. Frederick Loof and Anders Elkstrom (SWE) were leading at the first leeward mark, and had been for the duration of the race, when the breeze dropped to nothing, before filling in from the South-east. With half the fleet becalmed at the leeward mark.
Mark Mansfield and Killian Collins (IRL), far enough behind the becalmed fleet at that stage of the race, to see what was going on, sailed the long way round the fleet, caught up from 50th position, to round the leeward mark in third, and finish race 2 in second place, Loof and Elkstrom finished first, with Han Spitzauer and Andreas Hanakamp (AUT) in third.
