1-3.09.17 at the beautiful lake Batak in the middle of Bulgaria, Bulgaria nationals finals took part in 3 classes for seniors: F5-M, F5-E and F5-10 and separately one class for juniors: F5-E. It was also interesting that together with section S classes there was a competition of section M classes, so the full event attracted more people and when there is no wind, it is ideal conditions for section M classes racing.


First day was F5-M class. The wind started with B rig, the changed to A. I played a bit with changing rigs, and that's why one race I was too late at the starting line. Kseniia was all the time with B rig. Dimitar Davidkov with Graham Bantock boat (probably Prime Number) made us a strong concurrence in every race. The results are as follows:


Second day started with light wind and juniors F5-E class. Kseniia sailed well and won these races in a tight competition.


Then, after lunch brake, the wind became stable in the middle -upper range of A rig and seniors raced in F5-E class. After some races, Kseniia had issues with radio control and decided not to race more today. I had tight tactical racing with Dimitar Davidkov and sometimes during our duel we lost other good sailors. Final results in this class are as follows:


The last day, there were races of F5-10 class. Light wind. Only me and Kseniia had full size Tenrater boats and this predicted our win in this class. Only 4 races held before the storm started and racing was interrupted. The results are as follows:


 It was a fine event with warm atmosphere and good people. Thanks a lot to organizers, especially Dimitar Ganchev, the Chairman of Model Yacht club Pazardzhik. And also many thanks to all participants, especially to Dimitar Davidkov for tight and fair competition.
