European Optimist Team Cup, Germany
Racing finally underway
Racing began early today in what were still extremely light and difficult conditions. The final result saw a win for Turkey, who had previously shown their team racing skills to great effect with a second place in the IODA European Team Tacing Championship in August, second to Team Berlin and a third place to Italy.
