Roland Kirst (GER 87) about day 2

Hi Roland, you finished third today. Would you like to tell us something about the race?:

Well, you know me. I like it when there is a bit more wind. Today was really long and hot and when it is like that my brain becomes like a pudding.

‘In the race we started on the right side of the start line and we could go to the right side lay line to tack there and we came to the top mark in third position. So I was happy. But I am also happy to be on the shore now with a beer. It was unlucky that the last race was abandoned when the breeze was up. Maybe for tomorrow it would be better to go out once the sea breeze comes in.’
