Our coach Simone promised us 20 knots seabreeze every single day during the Europeans in Formia. Wel,, that did not age so well. We've again had super light wind and it was even hotter (which is why there was no seabreeze in the first place).
No single day with plus eights knots. Not ideal for a heavy team like us.
Not ideal to start with a UDF either. That dragged us down quite a bit since we subsequently had to be a lot more careful not to collect more of these three letters.
Taking this all into consideration we did pretty well. 18th overall and 5th U18 team. I have been the best German sailor atthe Europeans but I think Germany only sent the second best sailors.
Ironically, there were even more teams at the Europeans than at the Worlds and the overseas teams participated in both regattas.
We again were the by very far best Swiss (2nd Swiss ranked 44) which I means that we will be representing Switzerland at the World Sailing World Championships in Oman before Christmas.puts us way ahead in the race for selection for the World Sailing championships before Christmas.
No photos of us or of anybody, essentially. There's only a screenshot of our 7th place in the gold fleet.
Next stop: J/70 Youth Cup in Oberhofen.
