As predicted, sailing conditions were much better on day two of the German Open 2015. The wind was moderate and gusty in the morning but turned to a solid 10 knots of breeze as the day continued. Six races were sailed, which means that the event has already come to an early end. The SUI 072, team «Ottocinque» with Alain Marchand, expectedly claimed the victory. Detailed Results will follow tomorrow.
The misty morning was followed by a sunny first day at the Esse 850 German Open 2015. The fleet went out and the race committee did everything they could, but in the end, there was just not enough wind for racing today on Chiemsee. The next two days will again bring beautiful late summer weather and supposedly even 10 knots of northeasterly breeze on Saturday afternoon. We’ll hope the best and keep you up to date!
Even though the Oktoberfest is still two weeks away, the Esse 850-Fleet can look forward to some cordial Bavarian hospitality at the German Open 2015 from 11. – 13. of September anyway. Past year, the class was already welcomed with open arms in Germany, enjoyed three wonderful days in Diessen at Ammersee and caught a lot of sportive attention. This year’s host is the «Verein Seglerheim am (at) Chiemsee».
The two last events of the Esse 850 IC Cup 2015 are coming closer slowly but surely. On Lake Chiemsee, the class will have a lovely German Open from 11. - 13. of September. In the beginning of October, the Esse 850 fleet will then experience its last and most probably biggest event of the season, the Swiss Championships in Romanshorn on Lake Constance. Important: Entries for both events close on 31st of August already!
The first two days of the European Open at Malcesine were sunny, windy and at the same time, due to smacking waves, kind of wet. Day three was also wet, but this time, the cause was rain. The weather did not allow any thermal breeze to build up, which is why sailing was sadly not possible.
