Story written on Finnair airplane by Kai Saarhelo, thanks to the younger team who will drive the boats back to Finland

Day 1 five and Day 2 four races sailed. 11 races scheduled.
Day 1 very puffy, 10-22 knots southern increasing winds with shifts.
Day 2: puffy and shifty decreasing 10-16 knots.
Day 3
Early starting time on Monday morning or long lasting party on previous night, either or, few teams did not reach the race area in the first starts.
After two starts with brilliant outcome of young Mr. Persson with his father Jonatan, 11 races were done. Anyhow, race committee decided to bang one more start based on the rule wording, “11 races scheduled, but not limited”.
This was amazing the 51st Danish Open under the names Wiibroe, Harboe and N.B Cup. Great story based on warm hospitality and atmosphere on the small club. And the story continues; next year 52nd edition will see the light in the end of May. Thank you on behalf of all the teams!
