Apr 30.- May 2.

Club Homepage:

Day 1:
Friday saw 3 nice races with moderate breeze slowly decreasing to about 8 knots to the end of the third race. Taktically the last race was the most tricky with some pressure lines and some local shifts which made gains and losses on the beat easy.
Eastrely winds, sunny and warm.

Day 2:
After a two hour postponement due to no wind, three races have been sailed in better conditions than expected. Starting with light to moderate, the last race in the increasing wind saw nice 20 knots.
In the first race of the day, Nick Craig from GBR had some gear failure on the hull to prohibit him from doing any more races. Karsten Hitz from GER had some health problems to retire from the second race, but was able to get fit again for the last day.
Westerly winds, after overcast in the morning, sunny and warm later.
The fleet went to the chinese restaurant, after Robert making a last minute call to get tables for all which was a tricky task with over 50 J22 crews trying to get a table too.

Day 3:
Two races in moderate to strong winds from westerly directions. Probably the windiest races of the series but not too hard for any of the competitors.

Oliver Gronholz was the first sailor with aluminium mast.
