3 D-Ones gathered in Bruinisse together with 50 other skiff boats for the Dutch Open Skiff Trophy. The event was hosted by Aquavitesse, in the marina of the town. They offered perfect launching conditions for the fleet, very good and clean facilities in the marina and a very good race officer in the form of Bob Wainwright (Arky) taking the right decisions. There was a friendly and relaxed atmosphere amongst the sailors showing no boundaries between the different classes. Like many times, the D-Ones caught a lot of attention with many people taking pictures while rigging.

This time Nick and Mario moved ahead with Nick taking the bullet and Mario second. Tim Garvin GBR rounded out the top 3.  With close racing throughout the fleet and some classic Lake Garda down wind rides  everyone returned to shore to share their stories from the day over a beer and a plate of pasta at the club.
