It looks like sailing in your own country is giving an extra boost. Four Dutch teams have reached the final in Lelystad. Dutch guys Bart Lambriex and Philiper Meijer have won the qualifications. They only twice didn’t reach the top 10. Daniel Bramervaer and Floris van der Werken had a rough start this week. They had two bad races, but the rest of the week they sailed steady. They became second overall. The top 3 is completed by a German team. The Wedemeyer’s are had a few great races and a few unlucky races. They are 3rd overall.
