Germany’s J/70 Deutsche Segel Bundesliga held their second event of the season on Lake Constance, sailing off Konstanz on the northwestern side of the lake. The 36 sailing clubs from across Germany enjoyed a gorgeous weekend from May 17-19, but the light winds would not cooperate all weekend, producing just five races for each team over the three days. The reigning German champion from Hamburg’s Norddeutscher Regatta Verein regained their former strength to win the second event of the DSBL. On the podium behind the NRV, it was the Wassersport-Verein Hemelingen (WVH) team (Jan SEEKAMP, Sven GAUTER, Björn SCHÜTTE and Jens TSCHENTSCHER) from Bremen that took the silver medal, and the Bavarian Bayerischer Yacht Club (BYC) team (Veit HEMMETER, Teresa HEMMETER, Leopold LINDNER and Jan NÜRNBERGER) from Lake Starnberg that took the bronze. Rounding out the top five was Verein Seglerhaus am Wannsee in fourth and Wurttembergischer YC in fifth. As a result, the overall leaderboard changed for the season series. Leading is Verein Seglerhaus am Wannsee with a 1-4 for 5 points. Second is Bayerischer Yacht Club with a 3-3 for 6 points. And, third is Wassersport-Verein Hemelingen with a 5-2 for 7 points. In the second Sail Bundesliga, the team of ONE KIEL with helmsman Magnus Simon, Fabian Kasüske, Hinnerk Siemsen and Philipp Sudbrack prevailed in their first season against the competition. Behind ONE KIEL, the Lübeck Yacht Club (LYC) and the Bocholter Yacht Club came in second and third. For more J/70 German Sailing League information, visit
