EC 2017 FINAL RESULTS Corrected

Dear Fellow Iceboaters,

Today we rechecked the results of the 2017 European Championship and it came out that during the breaking of ties the throw-outs were discarded which led to an unfair result list. We recalculated the ties and the corrected results are posted below.

The Race Committee apologies for the mistakes made.

European Champioships – Series Standing – 23 races scored – Corrected FINAL

Have lot of fun and fair racing in the rest of the 2016/2017 Season.

EC 2017 Finished

Dear Fellow Iceboaters!

We have checked today several spots to continue the EC, but sorry to say that no-one of those was suitable for races. The ice still strong (19-20 cm), but unfortunately several small cracks appeared, which could not be a problem for fun sailing, but during the race, in stressed situation, when you may be forced to change your course they could be very dangerous.

Therefore the decision is to finish the EC.

We had two wonderful days of sailing. Thanks to the professional work of the Race Committee during the races we could manage to complete 8-8 races for the Gold Fleet and for the Silver Fleet and 7 races for the Bronze Fleet. All together 27 races in two days!! Wow!!

The Price Giving Ceremony will be held today, during the Party we organised earlier.

Place: Hotel Margaréta

Time: 19:30

What is going on?

Dear Sailors,

I am sorry to bring up a sensitive issue, but since the European Championship came to my country I can not look over what has happened today. I feel responsible what is going on here.

The race committee with the quads was sitting in the harbor 9 O’ Clock this morning. They seemed to refuse going out although the sailors were preparing or sailing a lot of them already out.

The course was not checked in time.

There was no reserve place to take the course.

We have 15 km to the opposite shore and about 30 km to the East coast from today’s place where we stood. That is a huge area, what was not checked for any possible courses before the race. The ice thickness is 17-19 cm with hard black ice base and only a few cm snow ice on top in flakes. You all has been there today and saw it. There should have been several places to put down the race course. There were local sailors coming to our event from the opposite shore and went back without a problem. We know the ice quality is the same all over and is more than enough to safe sailing.

It seems to me that we have again the same situation that has already happened in Estonia in 2015. We have great conditions and we don’t make races for strange reasons. We have changed the race committee since and I thought it was over, but it seems it is not!

I don’t find any good explanation why we were not sailing today and what was the reason that the organizers did not find the ice for us today…

I came here to race, but not only for the results. I think most of us doing it for the love of this sport. I am disappointed, and I did not signed up for this.

What happened today, destroys the good feeling and stone by stone demolishes our class.

I don’t want that and I  am ready to take steps against this.

I would like that the governing authority investigate this case and resolve this problem.

Please feel free to leave a comment.

Best Regards,

Peter Hamrak
