 Surprise - 5 Days on the Swiss Lake Geneva - Final Results -  Eric Monnin SUI/Ute Wagner AUT winners After five days - 120 hours non-stop without outside assistance -, the World Matchracing Number One Eric Monnin SUI, together with Ute Wagner AUT finished as clear winners of the 2020 Lake Geneva 5-day-race, having covered 416nm mostly in light winds. Loic Forestier/Bruno Engel SUI followed 10nm behind on rank 2. Daniel Bouwmeester/Gaetan Van Campenhoudt SUI completed the podium with only 2nm less sailed as the second-ranked. 39 one-design Surprise yachts completed the race, and only one boat was forced to abandon. The ranking list in distance sailed. ----- A Points ranking list has been established as well adding up the positions when passing the starting line off Vidy in every round. Olivier Légeret/Denis Girardet SUI are the points winner tied with Felix Oberle/Mayeul van den Broek SUI. ----- This two-person long-distance race rounding Lake Geneva in circles for five days has been run annually since 1993 with many two-person-mixed teams ever since. No new invention by World Sailing to please the IOC, no need to create an expensive event for the Olympic Games. Just do it as it happens at the grassroots! ----- The event website, the final report and the Facebook page with photos and videos.
