Storm on the Lake of Constance in 1974 - one boat lost - 11.06.2008 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
The documents section is now containing the story on the loss of Z-95 in 1974. The long standing rumour about a 2nd boat lost was clearified by comment from Peter Krohmer: That boat went to another harbour for shelter, without informing the race committee.
