Tobi Schadewaldt does the double

It's been a great year for Tobi Schadewaldt. Not only did he pick up the German 49er Championship with his teammate Hannes Baumann, the Gleistein-sponsored sailor has now added the German Laser title to his list of extraordinary achievements. It is the first time ever that this double has been pulled off in a single year. Making the win all the more remarkable were the freezing conditions mixed with fog and snow that prevailed during the regatta held on the Alpsee at the southern German town of Immenstadt.
