Round Robin 1 - Group A - Results

Both women & open Groups A have finished racing and the final results are in.

In the Women division, Russian Ekaterina Skudina is the undisputed leader with 5 victories in 5 races. Despite the fact her crew has been sailing for less than a year, they mastered perfectly the light and shifty breeze in the Binnenbecken. Although thousands of kilometers away from home, Skudina and her crew capitalized on the very similar conditions found on the lakes around Moscow.

In the Open division, Stefan Meister from Germany caused the biggest upset with 4 victories. As Meister stated, a combination of relaxed sailing and a bit of tactical advantage from sailing in the German and Austrian lakes helped him clinch the top spot.
