Today was the first day of the first competition day of the Belgian Speed week. In the morning the wind was between 12 and 14 knots. It was clearly not enough for the competition so the organisers opened a fun race for the riders to practice from 11 until 16 o'clock.

Unfortunately around 13 o'clock the wind died completely and all the riders came of the water.
Luckily the sun did its best to keep everyone happy, it was around 22 degrees. The
weather-forecast doesn't look so good for Wednesday, Thursday But for Friday they expect a new tramontana. Let's hope that this will bring some wind.

Day Two It was a day like it should be every day. Sunny, windy (22-27 knots) and a group of  motivated speed sailors.
They started the first heat at 11.30, 90 minutes sailing and then one hour break. Unfortunately the wind dropped, they held he new skippers meeting and put the riders standby until 15.45, when the wind came back, around 18- 23 knots.   Unfortunately again after one hour the wind went back down and the race officer ended the race.   The results are in, they had two counting rounds.

 Round one

1st  :David Garrel ( Current Euopean Champion)
2nd :Thorsten Mallon
3rd :Patrick Van Hoof 

Round two

1st :David Garrel
2nd :Patrick Van Hoof
3rd :Thorsten Mallon

Last Day

One more counting round on the last day. A fantastic 3rd bullet for David Garrel gives him the clear overall win. 2nd place was Thorsten Mallon which secures his 2nd place overall and 3rd place, giving him 3rd overall was Patrick Van Hoof. Prize giving was this afternoon with prizes from North Fanatic and Sonntag.
