Seidenberg wins 2010 German Radial Masters
Report from Peter Seidenberg:
I can report with pleasure and pride that I won the the 3-day German Radial Masters championship, held this last weekend on Lake Tollense, with the city of Neubrandenburg on its north shore, 2 hours north of Berlin. The lake is 7.5 miles long and 1.5 miles wide. The wind was mostly light, never exceeding 10 mph. As is typical, we never really experienced the best winds, meaning up the lake from the SW. Except for race 1 on Friday, the rest of the 6 races were sailed in NW winds, coming across the lake, shifty and gusty. Mostly due to dying winds, we had 1 race on Friday, 2 on Saturday, and 3 on Sunday, all on trapezoidal courses, with the Standards on the outer and the Radials on the inner loop. I was not only the 1st GGM, but also the 1st overall in the 36-boat Radial fleet. The results of both fleets are attached. Unfortunately, the age divisions are not indicated.
Fran and I are off touring the Baltic coast now for a week, then to Berlin for a family reunion next weekend before flying back to Boston the following Monday.
