Star Europeans Day 3, one race and one thunderstorm

Only one race was sailed this morning in Flensburg, for the 2018 Star European Championship, and it was a tough one indeed. The 71 boats left the shore for the early warning signal at 10am and started with 20 knots of wind, that gusted up to over 30 at the first windward mark as another thunderstorm approached the racecourse..

Star Europeans Day 2, Thunderstorm Nadine provides a semi rest day to the Star sailors

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. 

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.
