The results were following:

From the beginning Jens Amenda took leadership, I was second, Andrii Koval - third. Then, at the end of a day 1 Laszlo Csoka almost reached Jens, I was third, right after me - Valentin Fuchs. Andrii was 5th. Next day was won by Laszlo, I succeeded in last race after 3rd redress to overcome Jens. Third year in a row Ukrainians take 2nd place in this class at Pichlingersee - this is a good tradition, I think.

11 races in two heats were held. 6 during first day, 5 - during second day.

And after 2 discards final results were following:

I had a bad first day with a lot of races spoiled by some reasons not depending on me - like grass, mark line and contacts. After that day I was at 13th position. Second day was better, but I succeeded only to reach 8 position.

However, there is some positive even in this situation, because after 2 regattas I possess now 2nd ranking in Europa Cup Competition.
