German Championship ORC III at Warnemünder Woche: Two on the podium with Gleistein Ropes!

Halbtrocken – Flamongo Allstar Racing Team & AKKA – Hotquito Sailing Team secure first and third places, respectively

Following the recent International German Championships in offshore sailing held during the Warnemünder Woche, Gleistein is extremely proud of its sponsored teams. Putting in an extra-hot effort were the ladies of the Hotquito Sailing Team who took their Finn Flyer 36 to a very solid third place.

At the end of racing, however, it was the Halbtrocken - Flamongo Allstar Racing Team that took overall honours to win the 2017 International German Championships in offshore sailing (IDM 2017) in the ORC III class. On board: the new Gleisten Ropes RunnerTwin Olympic lines, originally conceived for the Danish National Sailing Team for their medal-winning performance at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Also rigged with lines from Gleistein Ropes and coming in at sixth place was the ReläXX team. 

Gleistein is delighted with the success of “its” teams! Congratulations for these fantastic results and all the best for the rest of this season and beyond!
