August 10, 2018

Day 2 of the 2018 Star European Championships on the Flensburg Fjord was marked by thunderstorm Nadine. Race director Claus Otto Hansen had already asked all 142 sailors the day before to secure the ships well for the night and set the earliest possible start for today at 2.30 pm, later postponed at 4.30 pm to let the storm pass; morning off so for the whole fleet.

Day 2 of the 2018 Star European Championships on the Flensburg Fjord was marked by thunderstorm Nadine.

Surprisingly much water had been pushed out of the fjord overnight by the westerly wind, so that some boats woke up in the mud this morning. Water filled back in just in time to let the boats dock out and head to the racecourse.

Augie Diaz (USA) Leads Day 1 of Star European Championships

August 09, 2018

The 2018 Star Europeans Championship officially started yesterday evening with theOpening Ceremony at Flensburger Segel-Club, but it was today that the battle on the water had its first go today.

Conditions on the first day of sailing were just right, with wind ranging between 8 and 12 knots, only a little shiftier than expected. With an unusual sun and clouds mix for this summer day, the 71 boats started together on one big start line. The unsettled wind direction made it difficult to decide the favorite side, and there were lots of positions’ changes in both races.
