DN World Championship Completed Today

Deb here again posting under Commodore Joerg Bohn’s account. What a day! Wish you all could have been here. The weather was gloomy when we arrived at the ice but the wind was up.

The ice was covered with water and the wind was brisk. Results are being tabulated right down the hall in the hotel but all signs indicate, Karol Jablonski P36 has won his 10th Gold Cup Championship. Amazing! …

World Championships: Day 1 report

Good evening. We are just off the ice. This is Deb Whitehorse here.  Jorge has been so kind as to give me the keys to the website in order to give you a short report of today’s racing.

World and European Championship 2016 Update 5

Dear Friends As mentioned yesteday everything is possible. Last evening the Puk Bay got hit by quite a lot of wet snow. It is being checked again at this Moment but it is not likely at this moment that we will sail there. At this Moments Icescouts are on their way in Sweden, Lithuania and Hungary.

The decision will also depend on if and how much snow Poland receives tomorrow.  Currently the best place would be Puck Bay North of Gdynia (North of Gdansk) Be aware, before you start travelling, with the weather  situation we have now, anything is possible!!! I will have more news tomorrow. Looking forward to a good regatta! JoerG-737

World and European Championship 2016 Update 3

Dear Friends Too many days to the next Weekend to announce anything. Our current main focus is on Poland and Sweden. Depending on the outcome of the snow predictions for tomorrow and Wednesday the current situation may change overnight!  At least we are lucky and have areas with ice and no snow in the forcast (e.g. lake  Glan in Sweden). Today we received several Reports from Vistula Lagoon (Krynica Morska) and Wladyslawowo/Puck. Also from Lake Glan in Sweden and the Stockholm area. Niklas will be out on the ice tomorrow in Kadiny (Vistula Lagoon) and check it. Attila startet today as well and is tonight in Zegrze. Both are checking ice tomorrow and …
