He sailed his AEOLOS P30 singlehanded. 71 boats have made the start and sailed a course of 80sm clockwise through the bay, shortened due to the predicted weak wind conditions: Fly By Travemünde - Staberhuk - Approach Wismar - Travemünde. The race course was 100 miles from Travemünde to a buoy in northeast of Fehmarn, then to a mark in front of Heiligendamm and back to Travemünde. 17 boats competed single handed, 54 raced double handed.
