Crews start training under good conditions

The 24 crews taking part in the 2010 EUROSAF European Match Race Championship are already practicing inside the Binnenbecken lake. Conditions are shaping up quite nicely and the morning rain gave way to a beautiful sunshine and blue skies that let the thermal breeze develop. The usual pattern in the southern part of the Constance lake is for a West-Southwest thermal breeze and it can pick up relatively easy due to the dark forests that surround the area, reaching up to 12 knots.
