Over a three-day weekend, the Hamburger Segel Club in Hamburg, Germany hosted their annual fall regatta on the beautiful Alster Lake. The 2019 edition had near record entries, and the racing was extremely competitive. The winner of the J/22 fleet was determined by a tie-breaker at 7 points each. Taking the countback win was Andreas Dillmann’s GER 1141 with a 1-OCS-1-5 scoreline for 7 points net. Second was Dagmar Hilcken’s GER 1445 who sailed to a 6-3-3-1 score, also for 7 points. The bronze was also determined by a tie-breaker. That countback went to Tom Loesch’s GER 1640 who had a 5-1-6-2 for 8 points; having to settle for fourth was Tom Lau’s GER 1541 with a 3-2-4-3 tally. Fifth place was taken by Christian Greving’s GER 1343 with a 4-6-2-7 scoreline for 12 points. For more Vaeterchen Frost Regatta information, visit https://www.hsc-regatta.org/.
