The International German Youth Championship (IDJM) of the 420s took place from 3rd to 5th October in Warnemünde. In cool temperatures around 10 degrees, 10 races with 102 boats were sailed on the cold Baltic Sea in changing conditions with little wind and hardly any waves up to 25 knots and a lot of waves. We were able to achieve 4th place in the overall ranking, 1st place in the U-17 classification and thus became German U-17 champions in 2019. The changing conditions were the greatest challenge for us at this championship, especially since we both suffered from a health point of view were. All in all, Warnemünde is always worth a trip, even if it was very cold this time of year. As part of the IDJM and the FSN Cup, which took place in Warnemünde the weekend before, we were again able to qualify for the World Cup next year, which we are very happy about and which was also our goal.
