August 6, 2009: LAKE ISEO, ITALY - - After five races of the Soling Europeans in Lake Iseo, Italy, the German team of Roman KOCH, Maxl KOCH and Gregor BORNEMANN hold a narrow overall lead.
The thermal wind as usual started around 12:00, boats before going to the windward mark were conducted through the middle of the town of Lovere, a nice show off for many tourists presents on the different areas of the city.
As said in Italian, it was a ‘troppo caldo’ (very hot) day but with nice winds of 11 to 15 knots coming from the southwest as usual 200 to 230 degrees.
The first race saw 'buddy' GER 304 of Thomas MASHKIWITZ, Christian OEHLER and Christoph WOSSALA sailing really fast to the right area and it was not really the left as all local ones were imagining, followed by team Marinepool GER 300 of Roman KOCH, Maxl KOCH and Gregor BORNEMANN and Austrian Champion aAUT 117 of Carl AUTERIED, Martin KENDLER and Udo MOSER.
