67. Glückstadtregatta

May 19, 2015

Great sailing conditions on the traditional Glückstadt regatta: 31 boats divided into 3 groups sailed the course from Wedel to Glückstadt on Saturday, with the Elan winning their group and Frida finishing second on its division (first Elb-H-Jolle after a close battle with HERZ-JUNG).

After a sleepover in Glückstadt, the fleet was ready to hit the way back: a strong north westerly breeze pushed the boats downwind at speed-records, surfing the waves of River Elbe and proving some teams on their spinnaker skills. Elb-H-Jolle Frida won its fleet hitting the record time of 01:28:04, one minute faster of the Swan 48 Elan that closed in 3rd position overall.
