Eleven Star Sailor teams will decide the Star Sailors League Lake Grand Slam on Lake Neuchatel tomorrow. Principle Race Officer, Sharon Bourke, called off racing at 16:00 (ECT). A fickle southerly breeze failed to establish itself and it was decided to call the qualification rounds to a halt.
The Final of the SSL Lake Grand Slam will take place tomorrow, Saturday 12th September, with three knock-out stages before the four remaining teams progress to the final. All of the rounds tomorrow are one race – knock outs.
The eleven finalists:
1 – Mark Mendelblatt – Brian Fatih 25 pts.
2 – Torben Grael – Guilherme De Almeida 33 pts.
3 – Augie Diaz – Arnis Baltins 34 pts.
4 – Ivan Kljakovic Gaspic – Josh Revkin 40 pts.
5 – George Szabo – Patrick Ducommun 44 pts.
