Report by Guido Schulte // Schweriner Cat - Cup 2013 Clear win for Thomas Paasch
"The start-up of the season for the Baltic A-Class community took place on Schweriner See, a reasonbly sized beautiful lake, 30 km south of Wismar and a traditional hot spot for racing sailors of many classes. However, the The A-class joined this Regatta for the first time after several years of absence, and a surprising number of 19 competitors from Poland, Denmark and Germany showed up.
Conditions were light and shifty with occasional thermical gusts. 3+3 quite long races have been completed.
Thomas Paasch showed a convincing and consistent performance with 1-1-1-1-2-2, followed by Guido Schulte second and Jörgen Hansen in third place. However, behind Thomas, racing was pretty tight and and down to place 7 with Jörg, Donald, Steffen and Lars, all had very good chances of taking podium results.
The hosting club SSV (Schweriner Segelverein) has organised a great event, on- and offshore,
and we will certainly come back next year, hopefully with warmer temperatures..."

Nice to have active sailors like Thomas, who is current webmaster & responsible for the new website of the IACA, contributing for their class.
