The only attempt of racing was abandoned by RO Gert Schmidleitner a the first windward mark , after 6 boats rounded the one.
The teams had sailed a light wind race which paid the right side of the course, after a crowded start at the committee vessel that lead into some over early boats.
The satisfying moment saw "rookie" UKR 2 Dimitry Yarovoy, Roman Marchenko and Yevhenil Didyk sailing their first international event to round first the marks.
After the race was abandoned a second start was attempted and aborted 2 min before sending all boats to wait at the harbor, but on 16:30hs the day was called off and teams enjoyed the Zipfer bar with lots of beer and then they went home to get dressed for the Hungarian night dressed in wine.
10:00 hs on Saturday , the Race Committee will address the sailors and offer the typical Zipfer breakfast, Weiss Wurst and beer before boats are sent out to race.
