Unstable light conditions make fair racing impossible; today a 9-mile inshore substitute race is added to options to complete the event. After a two hour delay ashore, race managers from the Balatonfüredi Yacht Club headed out to the lake with the intent to set windward/leeward courses in the third day of competition at the ORC Sportboat European Championship.
