Danish Nationals – Wind, Weeds, Breakdowns & Revenge

"This past weekend, 27th and 28th of September, the Danish Nationals were held at Hellerup Sailing Club, just north of Copenhagen, as a joint event with the Contender class.

The weather was beautiful for this time of year, the wind was blowing offshore and provided some flat water conditions in the race area, but on the other hand the wind was very gusty. In the first race we had several incidents:

It seems Sandro learned fast from Sascha Wallmer. As reported some weeks ago, Sandro told us that Sascha was 'sailing around him in circles' in the trainings being done with the new Scheurer G7s.

Wallmer won the Italian event 2 weeks ago and ended second this time at the Swiss Nats behind Caviezel.
3rd place for Helmut Stumhoffer, 4th for Daniel Caviezel and 5th for Mathias Dietz.

Sweden, 2014 season's end Regatta

Sent by Harald Wigerstedt. The Sweden Marstrom fleet continues to put good numbers on their local races. The local Association is making some changes as reported by Harald, so we are glad to hear more from this Nordic fleet that is gathering youths to race along long time A-Cat sailors a legends like Goran Mastrom.

Italian Nats 2014 @Punta Ala: Sacha Wallmer 1st, Luca Maffessoli Italian Champ

All Images Serena Scary / Photo Studio 17. -- Last week while exchanging some mails with Sandro Caviezel about an interview on the new Scheurer development, I commented on his performance at Bordeaux where he ended 5th and first European, but Sandro told me he really wasn´t sailing that good in fact, and that Sascha Wallmer could circle around him after some tests done in their home waters.
Sascha was not present at Bordeaux, and at Punta Ala, home of 2015 Worlds, he grabbed the Italians Nats Championships over Bob Baier and Luca Maffessoli, who crowned himself 2014 Italian Champ.
