Germany, Warnemünder Woche 2004

July 09th - 11th

Very Light on the first day, then strong south westerlies

On the first day there was a very light and shifty northerly. After 4 hours of drifting and waiting we had one race wich was shortened to get results at all.

On the second day the conditions had changed to a nice 24 knot breeze (12 m/s) from south west, also the famous Warnemünde waves had arrived.
Most of the fleet had real fun, only the course was quite close to the shore, so that on the outer Loop, our course, the waves came from 30 degree different angle and were less high than further out.
Three races were sailed, all won by Karsten Hitz who was only challanged by Jorgen Lindhardtsen and Greg Wilcox in the last race of the day.
The next boats were Greg Wilcox, Martin von Zimmermann and Sönke Beherns wich all showed very good speed.
Due to the close shore, the wind was shifty enough to make some tactical gains or losses.
With Christian Senst, another Proctor Carbon mast broke in just more than two weeks, after Nick Craigs at Kiel. The mast broke at nearly the same point between the deck and the gooseneck, making it look like a construction problem with these lightweight masts.

On Sunday, the last racing day, the wind picked up to up to 30 knots, making the reaches and runs even more fun. The waves got longer and bigger. Again Karsten won, but Martin von Zimmermann was able to pass Jorgen Lindhardtsen.
After one race the Race Committee decided to send us home as the wind was still rising.

Beside the rain wich struck us every afternoon on the shore, it was a nice event again, proving Warnemünde as one of the best sailing areas in Europe.

Best placed boat with aluminium mast was Peter Scheuerl, Carsten Saß next Aluminium mast.
