Successful Hanse Sail 2008

in Updates by

The weather was our friend during this years Hanse Sail-luckily! About a million of visitors enjoyed this traditional baltic event on the quays of Warnemuende and Rostock Port. 230 sailing vessels from 13 nations proudly showed their countanance and wooden corpus. Thousands of visitors again took the chance to get a closer look at the “Gorch Fock“, “Zobel”, “Braunschweig” and other ships. The “Gorch Fock” will be back in 2009.

The results of the regattas: the “First ship home” from the big ones was the Clipper “Stad Amsterdam“, whilst you have to know that the schonerbrigg “Greif” -being second ship home- has got much less sail area that the dutch vessel. The “Greif” won a neck-and-neck race against the swedish brigantine “Baltic Beauty”. The winner of the single-masted sailing boats is “Stella Maris”. On Saturday especially the viewers in Warnemuende had an awsome picture of the fireworks, because at the same time they had the chance to watch the cruise liner “Regatta” leave the Rostock Port.

We hope that anyone who took the chance to watch all that via Fleetmon also had an great experience and enjoyed the Hanse Sail 2008!

Another couple weeks and we will host the “HanseSail 08” here in Rostock. That will be our easy chance to spot lots of Tall-Ships and with some luck there is enough wind to catch them sailing. We will prepare another special dedicated to this event in our Fleettracking sektion.

Also, wer hat in Kiel die tollen Segler fotogorafiert, würde mich freuen ein paar Bilder der Kieler Woche zu sehen :) Harry?

We had quiet some trouble with all the Fleet Tracking pages this morning. The reason was my early morning work this night, where I missconfigured the url-routing.
I’m sorry about shutting off the region-views that way for almost 6 hours.

Listening to user-comments over the last months, we decided to extend the ways to upload images to DS.
In our works right now is an uploader, which gives you more convinience when editing your images. Starting features are:

– stored profiles for users, so the can
– prepare tag, name, research IMOs without a website
– when ready upload multiple images with one click to multiple spotting sites

Since there is soon a long free weekend in Germany, we are optimistic to present results the week after Pentecost :)
