Great roundup video from Kampai Chris.
Startline action thanks to Andreas for the pic
The Flevocup went down well this year, with a good mix of German, Austrian, Dutch and English meeting up to compete.
The weather gods couldn’t have been kinder with hot sunny conditions and a great mix of wind strengths meaning plenty of rig changes and a good chance to see who had the pace.
After 18 races Eric Gielen and his trimaran took the win, with a consistent scoreline and very few mistakes. Christian Englehardt took second with his MOD40 and Ralf Klingel in third.
Michael Scharmer with his cat and Mike Cooke with his tri both suffered with electrical failures which knocked them from the top spots, despite winning most of the races between them.
Theres some excellent photos on the German Mini40 forum and a load of stuff over on the Mini 40 Facebook page where most of the action is.
Looking forward to next year already!

The final event of the Gosport calendar happened over the weekend, with 9 boats turning out to enjoy the unseasonable sunshine and some light airs racing.
Paul Edwards sailing his Ghost Train made the most of the shifty conditions taking the win with a consistent score line from Mike Cooke who launched his new v2 Shinobi on the day, with local stalwart Mike Dann rounding out the top three with his own design Cat.
New calendar is being finalised over the next couple of weeks and we’ve been promised a season roundup from the locals!
Here are a list of dates for the 2013 club multihull series.
If you are a visiting skipper the club now has a £5 (per day) entrance fee to join in with the racing, this is to make sure that you are covered by the club insurance.
Hope to see you all on the water at some point this year.
