Video of last race (R10)

Here are the last two legs of Race 10 (last race) of the Walleye Wagatta. Winds were light so the last race was a one lap windward-leeward course for A Fleet, and the Sport Fleet had a shortened course that sent them to to upwind mark and then finishing downwind through the start line. Magnus Zaunmueller won the A Fleet on the big course at virtually the same time his younger brother, Niels, crossed the line coming downwind to finish 2nd in the Sport Fleet race (behind Victor Hora). Their Dad, Jim (MNH), is also seen at the pin end of the finish line in the video.

There are five Severne Raceboard sails seen in this video. I lent mine to Magnus since he is between rigs right now, and he put it to good use winning this race. He also won the first two races of the day, and finished 3rd in the other.

Adam Anderson won the overall event title with near perfect sailing on Saturday (1-1-1-1-2-1) and a strong showing on Sunday as well (2-3-2-4), so he kept 5 bullets and 3 seconds. Alex Monroe and Don Altmeyer finished in 2nd and 3rd place overall, respectively.
