Since early morning of the next day didn't leave feeling of a becoming ripe thunder-storm. Forecasts promised bad weather in the second half of day. At 10.00 the fleet was on water and start of the first race was given at an abating wind. To the finish it became clear that now something will occur: over the right coast the sky turned black, and it was visible as the storm front comes nearer. Races were stopped and the judge gave command to come back to the coast. The wind sharply amplified then flew squall and strong heavy rain began. Not all managed to get back to shore. During squall put one of Ducky15, it made full revolution before situation "a mast down". His helmsman swam nearby, trying to catch a departuring gennaker. At this moment, the wave raised a catamaran board, the wind blew under an awning and the catamaran itself rose to equal Kiel then again turned over on other board and rose a mast down, having thus made a turn on 360 degrees. After that, the catamaran managed to be turned again, but it was not its last revolution that day. Other catamaran – Ducky17, also turned over, but depth didn't suffice and the mast rested against a bottom. The turned catamaran with a mast rested against a bottom, a wind lifted in air and turned on other board, thus having made revolution through a mast. It was similar to pole vaults, thus a catamaran flew up meter on two.

As a result of these events people and catamarans didn't suffer and after the squall, slightly frozen, but happy all returned on base. Again gained experience, won't be further superfluous. Impressions that day was enough and on this background it was decided to sum up and carry out regatta closing.
