Scheidt leading the Lasers

Kiel Week fires up

Sunday June 23rd 2013, Author: James Boyd, Location: Germany

Sailors from six nations are leading the fleet in eight Olympic sailing disciplines and paralympic boat classes 2.4mR.

With Mark Andrews in the Finn and Sophie Weguelin/Eilidh McIntryre, the British are the first set for the Gold Fleet. In the 49er (Delle Karth/Resch) and 470 men (Schmidt/Reichsstaedter) Austrians take the lead after the second racing day, in the 49er FX (Jurczok/Lorenz) and the 2.4mR (Kroeger) German sailors are at the top. The Australian crew Jason Waterhouse/Lisa Darmanin keeps on going in the Nacra 17, Finish sailor Tuula Tenkanen is in the front in the Laser Radial.

In his first year being the single head of organisation for the triangle courses for Kiel Week, Peter Ramcke can be happy to have a strong partner. The wind on the second day was great again and made it possible to continue with the successful start of the racing week with 48 race starts. The German athletes were well in front, being able to gain a major part of the first places, 20 in total.

Heiko Kroeger (Ammersbek) is the most confident among the German world-class sailors. The paralympics winner from 2000 dominates the 2.4mR fleet as he likes and could continue his successful races by becoming first in all three races.

In the 49er, the athletes from the host country are not able to beat the Austrian duo Delle Karth/Nikolaus Resch. The team from the Alps became first four times in the eight races of the two days and is now the top team in the races of the best 25 crews, that will be competing in the Gold Fleet the next two days to decide on the six best teams for the final race on Wednesday.

With only 17 teams in the 49erFX, there is no cut for the skiff women. But the German top teams would have easily made it, since they are at the top of the fleet. Tina Lutz/Susann Beucke (Bergen/Strande) could win two of the four races on Sunday, Victoria Jurczok/AnikaLorenz (Kiel), the German siblings teams Jule and Lotta Goerge (Kiel) were leading in the other two races. Now Jurczok/Lorenz are leading, followed by Lutz/Beucke. Goerge/Goerge are right behind the Australians Tessa Parkinson/Chelsea in fourth position.

The Finn is still dominated mainly by the Brits. Mark Andrews leads before Andrew Mills. This duo could win all races up to now with the Swedish Olympic former Star crew, Max Salminen following them.

Tuula Tenkanen from Finland is sailing way up front in the Laser Radial. In second position is the first in the world ranking Tatiana Drozdovskaya from Belarus.

The two-time World Champion Robert Scheidt from Brasil could celebrate a glorious comeback in the Laser. He did leave 90 competitors - the whole fleet - behind him. Philipp Buhl from Kiel is in third position.

In the Nacra 17, the German sailors have to learn the hard way. Lisa Rattemeyer from Kiel with her German-Italian helmsman Pietro Sibello was pushed back to position 10. The Australians Jason Waterhouse/Lisa Darmanin are sailing in the front. "We like these shifty and gusty conditions. It's is just like at home," explains Waterhouse. "The fleet here is very good, a good practice for the World Championship in Den Haag in July."
