German Open 2019

The action has moved north this weekend. Our best German sailors have gathered in Warnemünde to sail the German Open national championship for Seascape First 18 – which is a part of Warnemuender Woche.

There are more than 1400 sailors competing in 14 different classes here this week. It is great to see the whole city living with the event. Organisation on water and on land is just above and beyond.

On Tuesday and Wednesday strong westerly winds provided a perfect training opportunities. Some teams sailed more than 30 miles in one afternoon going up and down the coast. The prediction for the races starting today on Thursday unfortunately does not promise too much action. Especially frustrating can be the residual waves.

Stay tuned for more.
