HUNGARIANS LEADING AFTER THE FIRST DAY IN MASTER'S CUP02 Aug 2022
Summary of the first day of racing.
The Master’s Cup fleet sailed out from the marina as scheduled in an Eastern wind. The first race started at 10 o'clock and was won by the Hungarian team Sallai-Perjés. The second race was started in time, but it was abandoned because of lack of wind. The sailors waited a bit ashore, but at 14.00 there seemed to appear some promising wind from the north. Although it was delayed a bit more, the second race was finally started for the second time at about 16:00. At the end of the day the Race Committee managed to organize all the races scheduled for today.
The second race was won again by Sallai-Perjés and the third by Hungarians Gond-Bors. The Hungarian duo of Sallai-Perjés leads the fleet by 1 point, Gond-Bors follows in second place and last year's champions Thieme-Thieme stand in third place.
Back in the Club, the organizing committee welcomed the sailors in a cozy and friendly atmosphere with stew and tap beer.
2022 470 Master’s Cup is taking place from 1 to 5 August in Tihany, Hungary. The event is organised by Tihanyi Hajós Egylet, in co-operation with the International 470 Class Association, under the auspices of the Hungarian Sailing Federation
