SSL Lake Grand Slam
8th-12th September 2015
Cercle de la Voiles de Grandson

Eleven Star Sailor teams will decide the Star Sailors League Lake Grand Slam on Lake Neuchâtel tomorrow. Principle Race Officer, Sharon Bourke, called off racing at 16:00 (ECT). A fickle southerly breeze failed to establish itself and it was decided to call the qualification rounds to a halt.

The Final of the SSL Lake Grand Slam will take place tomorrow, Saturday 12th September, with three knock-out stages before the four remaining teams progress to the final. All of the rounds tomorrow are one race – knock outs.
The eleven finalists:

1 – Mark Mendelblatt – Brian Fatih                   25 pts.
2 – Torben Grael – Guilherme De Almeida       33 pts.
3 – Augie Diaz – Arnis Baltins                           34 pts.
4 – Ivan Kljakovic Gaspic – Josh Revkin           40 pts.
5 – George Szabo – Patrick Ducommun           44 pts.
6 – Robert Stanjek – Frithjof Kleen                    47 pts.
7 – Xavier Rohart – Stefano Lillia                      50 pts.
8 – Jean-Baptiste Bernaz – Pascal Rambeau   53 pts.
9 – Mateusz Kusnierewicz – Dominik Zycki       54 pts.
10 – Johannes Polgar – Markus Koy                 73 pts.
11 – Jorge Zarif – Bruno Prada                 

Mark Mendelblatt & Brian Fatih won the qualifying stages and will get a bye for the quarter finals. The top six teams in the ten-boat Quarter-Final will progress to the Semi-Final to be joined by Mendelblatt & Fatih. The top four teams from then go through to the final. 

All the action is freely available on the internet and continues tomorrow with quarter finals scheduled to start at 09:30 (ECT). With expert commentary from special studio guests. On the water, the latest in hi-tech camera technology, as well as Virtual Eye 3D Graphics, will provide thrilling viewing. Armchair sailors can also join the race with Virtual Regatta.
