D-One Gold Cup at Lake Garda day 2 © Edoardo Baj Macario

The fleet of 25 D-Ones from six nations enjoyed two races in a 15knt northerly Pela wind. Mario Rabbo ITA and Tomai Balazs HUN made the break away with Mario winning and Nick Craig GBR moving up to second after Tomai made a mistake at the finish.

The wind was shifting more for the second race and the first beat saw gains and losses on either side. This time Nick and Mario moved ahead with Nick taking the bullet and Mario second. Tim Garvin GBR rounded out the top three.

With close racing throughout the fleet and some classic Lake Garda down wind rides everyone returned to shore to share their stories from the day over a beer and a plate of pasta at the club.
