Mike Bullot at Kiel Week 2010

Mike Bullot finished 9th overal with a 8th in the medal race at 2010 Kiel Week Regatta in Germany. There were 118 Lasers divided into 3 fleets. Light winds dirsupted 3 days leaving only 5 races sailed for the Lasers. Mikes scoreline was (5,11,1,4, 16). The first 3 races were on the first day in 18-20 knots. The 11th was looking like a bullet for most of the race till a committee bungle with the course lead him to the wrong mark.
This result follows on from a 5th at the recent Laser Europeans giving consistent results in the top 10.
