German Open Melges 24
27 boats signed in the German Open 2009. Finally 23 boats showed up at the starting line. This German open was tracked by realtime gps tracking "track my race" by mandigo.
The weather report was promising and the in fact 9 exciting races could be sailed. The 2 races on Friday were very sportive with gusts up to 35 knots and the fleet showed an impressive performance - the Race Committee was very impressed, especially the downwind runs with 18 knots boat speed were formidable.
 
The 2 races on Saturday were sailed in a 10 knots breeze which picked up to 25 knots when a rain-shower was moving over the race area. Weather report for Sunday was promising: less wind but sunshine and blue skies - and this was delivered. The race committee decided to sail as many races due to Monday's forecast with dying winds. 5 races could be sailed in 7 hours and by 18:00 the Championship was over: 9 challenging races with 8 different winners - another proof for the equal level of the teams.
 
20 boats were tracked by mandigos new gps module, the sailchip. All results were broadcasted live in the internet and in the harbour of the chiemsee yacht club. Fastet boat on track was „mens secret business“ with gps speed over ground of 18,7 knots in the second race. Congratulations to Rudi Houdek and his crew.
