The teams from last year took almost part the first who won the cup NIEHAMMAWIND, the second place RED SNAPP and the third placed ESCAPE.
For the spectators the course was modified, the start was out on the water,not on dthe shore and the race began with a unlucky collision. From the startingline through the gate and then in a split against the wind round the Snip. Both tracks from the split-course were equal because the winner GIESI and the second place KEINE HALBEN SACHEN choose separate ways and reached the beach for the „Prosecco-Finish“ with just five seconds of difference. So team GIESI won the SNIP-TROPHY 2017.
Third place went to team ESCAPE as they did last year, they annouced to defend their third place next year again.

The other results are:
4. TRÜBE TRONE
5. M und M´s
6. GAPP
7. BOCK FACK
8. NIEHAMMAWIND

not finished: Proix (accident), SMART (tec. Problem), RED SNAPP (abandoned). 
We all look forward to meet you again next year for the SNIP-TROPHY 2018
