The Berlin Skiff Bash 2017

And again the Müggelsee has called, the area in which Jochen Schümann has learned to train and train.

To sail in the beautiful southeast of Berlin with gusts and shifts is always proving to be an exciting challenge!

We were a guest at the sailing community at the Müggelsee (SGaM - on a wonderful terrain with direct connection to all possibilities of the big city and nevertheless in the nature.

There were various Skiff classes, an RS 500, 6 moths and 7 Musto skiffs. Through for the holiday, it was a good idea to arrive on Thursday and sail the first winds on the lake.

The first start was scheduled for Friday, 12.00, and was started almost to the minute. The statement that Saturday is too little wind, the as always first-class race track around Antje Schneidewind and the family to speed up 4 of the 12 races.

The well-earned landing beer, Bockwurst and cake, donated by the SGaM, then greeted us on land.

Saturday, as expected, the start had to be postponed.

In the afternoon, Rasmus had a look and sent convincing winds - and then the race for us on the lake. Two races came, wind feeling and a sense of the right side of the course were required.

On Sunday, the prediction was better and so punctual departure was announced.

Well sailable wind around 10 kn and sensational 30 degrees air temperature were fun, but the gusts also caused a few damage.

4 races have really tested us.

In the end, 11 sailed races were on paper. The weather gave us more than spoiled, and the great heartiness in the hosting association makes huge anticipation for the next edition in 2018.

Many thanks to the organizers, the generous sponsor Yachtservice Karsten Groll, the SGaM, the whole family Schneidwind and all in the background Contributors for this beautiful and relaxed regatta end.
